Hay & Forage report for April 6
Friday, April 6
Compared to last week: Hay movement light under limited buyer demand. Many hay buyers are using previously contracted supplies along with very limited spot purchases before doing much purchasing to build inventories before new-crop. Both buyers and sellers continue to negotiate on new-crop prices. Recent rains around the state have benefited grasslands and demand for supplemental feeding is limited. Cutting and baling of new-crop coastal bermuda hay continues in South Texas.
Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted.
North, Central, & East Texas
Alfalfa: Small Squares: Delivered: Premium to Supreme $400-$495, $12-$15 per bale.
Large Squares: Delivered: Premium to Supreme $300-$350; Good to Premium $250-$300.
Coastal Bermuda: Small Squares: few sales, new crop: FOB: Good to Premium $230-$300, $9-$10 per bale.
Large Rounds: FOB: few sales, new crop $80-$85; $160-$200.
Wheat Hay: Large Rounds: Delivered: $140.
South Texas Hay Report
Coastal Bermuda: Small squares: few sales, new crop: FOB: Good to Premium $200-$210, $6-$7 per sale.
