Missouri Weekly Hay Summary Week ending 11/09/12

Thursday, November 8, 2012

Hay sales were limited this week.  While most producers seem content to
take a wait-and-see approach, others are seeking a "bargain" and report
their personal stocks to be short of the anticipated need. Winter wheat
is planted and emerging ahead of schedule but fields are showing signs
of needing moisture. The greatest concern as winter approaches may be 
the 77 percent of producers indicating the stock water supply to be very
short or short with only 23 percent having adequate supply. Hay supply
remains light, demand is good and prices are steady. 
The Missouri Department of Agriculture has a hay directory available for 
both buyers and sellers. To be listed, or for a directory visit
