Friday, March 22

Compared to last week: Hay prices weak. Many buyers satisfied to use

previously purchased or contracted supplies and wait for new-crop hay. Buyers bidding lower and sellers holding firm as freight costs are large price determining factors. Trade and demand light to moderate. Most regions of the State have had normal to higher temperatures and windy conditions that have dried out soils and moisture levels are only short to adequate. The exception is parts of North Texas that received rain and pastures and ranges are in fairly good conditions.

Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted.

Alfalfa: Small Squares: Delivered: Premium to Supreme limited test $8-$12 per bale.
