Friday, July 26

Compared to last week: Trade on hay slow to moderate under light to moderate demand. Demand has been fairly good especially on wheat hay but trade has slowed as prices rise and it has become hard to find. Hay and forage producers in much of the state have been forced to contend with grasshoppers that have raised havoc in fields. According to the National Weather Service all of the state received rainfall over the last seven days. Generally traces to 2 inches fell with a few instances in some areas of 6 to 10 inches. Pastures and rangelands have greened up and improved livestock grazing. Dry land hay operations will be able to get another cutting. Furthermore, irrigation systems can be shut down for a few days until soils dry again. The recent rains have been very beneficial but the drought still continues in Texas. According to the U.S. Drought Monitor more than 94 percent of the state remains under moderate to extreme drought. Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted.
