Friday, June 21

Hay prices steady to lower under light to moderate trade and demand. Trade on grass hays in the Panhandle especially light due to freight costs and the availability of wheat hay. Ample wheat hay on offer as many wheat producers opted to bale instead of harvest due to the late freezes that damaged the crop. Hay bailing continues with ample supply in several areas although some balers are forced to wait as rain showers hamper baling. All regions of the state received scattered rain showers and isolated thunderstorms which will improve and benefit pastures, hay fields and grazing conditions. Although, these scattered rains will benefit grazing conditions in some areas it has not been enough to completely replenish pond and tank water thus ranchers careful about restocking. More rain is needed to end drought and in some Regions rain might have come too late to greatly benefit row crops. Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted.
