Friday, March 29

Compared to last week: Hay prices steady. Alfalfa hay producers are two to three weeks away from cutting and bailing and Coastal Bermuda fields are breaking dormancy in some southern regions. Many are questioning how new-crop hay will be priced. A few regions of the state received small amounts of rainfall but most still need moisture as drought situations continue. Temperatures have ranged from below normal to above normal over the state with windy conditions. This windy weather continues to dry out soil moisture levels over the state and soil levels rated as very short to adequate. Wildfire danger remains a concern in many counties and regions. Supplemental feeding continues and many ranchers are culling and reducing herds. Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted.
