Missouri Weekly Hay Summary Week ending 10/21/11

Thursday, October 20, 2011

With the abrupt cold snap enveloping the state, livestock producers
are counting hay bales and the number of days until April.  The cold
weather may not be here to stay this week, but we are on winter's 
doorstep and worry about feed supply is settling into coffee shop
conversations on a regular basis. While loads of hay are seen traveling
Missouri highways, most of it did not originate here and is bound for
destinations far more devastated than even our most devoid regions.  
Hay demand is light. Supply is moderate.  Prices are steady to firm.
Missouri Department of Agriculture has a hay directory available for 
both buyers and sellers. To be listed, or for a directory, visit
