Friday, Feb. 15

Compared to last week: Hay prices mostly steady. Trade and demand light to moderate. Available hay is being held at steady to higher price levels while many buyers continue to try to purchase at lower levels. High priced feed ration costs, lower trending cattle markets and dairies continuing to be cautious have buyers bidding lower while high production costs have hay producers reluctant to lower price levels. Numerous areas of the state have received moisture in the form of rain or snow the last several weeks which will be beneficial to winter grasses, wheat and other forages. These rains and snow will add moisture to dry soils and should benefit farmers intending to plant row crops in the early spring. This moisture will not be enough to break drought conditions in most areas but it will be helpful. Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted. . . .
