Friday, May 31

Compared to last week: Hay prices very little changed this week under moderate trade and demand. Hay buyers and sellers continue to negotiate new-crop hay prices. A lot of trade activity and interest this week has centered on wheat hay. Wheat hay prices continue to have a wide price spread mainly due to amount of protein and freight. The top of the range prices on wheat hay is beardless with bearded usually at the lower end of the ranges. Many areas of the state have received needed rainfall this past week with hail, 50-70 mph winds, windstorms, and tornadoes occurring in the Panhandle. Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted.
