Hay & Forage report for June 28
Friday, June 28
Compared to last week: Hay trade activity has been moderate under moderate demand most of the week. Hay cutting and bailing is in full swing as balers work around scattered rain showers in some areas. Thunderstorms and isolated rain showers are bringing needed moisture to various areas of the state. However, the summer heat and dry, winds are quickly depleting any soil moisture and drying pastures and fields. These rain showers are very welcomed but more is needed to end drought conditions in the very dry areas of the state. Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except noted.
