Friday, Feb. 8

Compared to last week: Hay prices mostly steady. Trade light to moderate with movement rather slow. Some out of state hay producers continue to hold supplies at higher price levels while buyers are trying to bid and purchase at lower price levels. Several areas of the state have experienced hay hard to find especially good quality grinding type alfalfa. Buyers continue to have the burden of formulating livestock rations with ongoing high feed costs. Rain showers in mostly Northeast, East, Southeast, and parts of South Texas will be a huge benefit to winter forages and grasses. Furthermore, this rain will add to the soil moisture and help the outlook for those farmers thinking about planting row crops in those southern areas in mid to late February. However, other parts of the state continue in drought conditions. Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted. . . .
