Friday, May 10
Compared to last week: Hay prices generally steady to weak. Only a few areas of the state received any kind of measurable rainfall this week with most areas still dry and in need of rain. Unseasonable cold temperatures and in some northern areas significant freezes occurred this week. These cold temperatures over the state further damaged an already damaged wheat crop. Also, other crops and grasses were damaged or growth slowed. Thus, bailing of Bermuda grasses set back a few weeks. Trade activity was light on light to moderate demand as continued talk of new crop prices. Supplemental feeding of livestock continues in most all regions as drought conditions remain. Many livestock producers are reducing herds as grazing conditions deteriorate. Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted.
