Friday, Nov. 30
Compared to last week: Hay prices generally steady. Trade and demand light to moderate over most marketing areas of the state. Most of the state continues to be in some degree of drought ranging from extreme drought to moderate drought conditions. Most areas have noted wheat, winter small grain, and forages showing signs of stress due to lack of moisture except irrigated fields. The warmer than normal temperatures and windy conditions has continued to dry out soil moisture. Supplemental feeding of livestock continues in many areas. Most hay producers are completed with cutting and bailing for the season. Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted.
