Missouri Weekly Hay Summary Week ending 10/19/12

Friday, October 19, 2012

Missouri hay supplies remain light but producers in the South and Southeastern
regions of the U.S. continue to make their heavier supplies known.  Hay demand 
is very good, with most buyers grabbing up local hay as soon as it is on the 
market to avoid making a deal on any hay sight-unseen. Prices are firm and 
sellers willing to make a delivery are increasing that fee to cover the nearly 4.00
a gallon diesel. The Missouri Department of Agriculture has a hay directory 
available for both buyers and sellers. To be listed, or for a directory visit  
http://mda.mo.gov/abd/haydirectory/ or for current listings of hay
