Hay & Forage report for May 4
Friday, May 4
Compared to last week: Hay prices lower with light to moderate demand and continued slow movement. Hay buying and selling interests continue to work on establishing new-crop price levels. Recent rains and warm temperatures in Texas have helped the growth of warm season grasses and supplemental feeding of livestock minimal.
