Friday, April 5

Compared to last week: Hay prices generally steady. Trade slow under light buyer demand. A few spot loads of hay traded this week but most large users of hay are trying to use up previously purchased or contracted supplies before new-crop hay is available. Much of the discussion on hay centers on possible price levels of new-crop hay. First cutting of Alfalfa is about 2 or 3 weeks away while Coastal Bermuda is about a month a way. Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted.

North, Central, & East Texas

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

Large Squares: Delivered: Premium to Supreme $275-$300. Good to Premium $260-$275.

Coastal Bermuda: Small Squares: FOB: Good to Premium $230-$265, $7-$8 per bale; Fair to Good $5-$7 per bale.

Large Rounds: FOB: Good to Premium $50-$90; $100-$180 per ton, Good $40-$50 per roll, $100-$120 per ton; Fair $35-$40 per roll.

South Texas Hay Report

Coastal Bermuda: Small squares: FOB: Good to Premium $230-$265, $7-$8 per bale; Fair to Good $165-$230, $5-$7 per bale.

Large rounds: FOB and delivered locally: Good to Premium $120-$180; $60-$100 per roll, Good $50-$60 per roll, $100-$120 per ton.

The Texas Department of Agriculture has Hay and Grazing Hot Line set up for buyers and sellers looking for hay or grazing; the number is 1-877-429-1998. The website for the hotline is: www.TexasAgriculture.gov/hayhotline.
