Friday, July 26

Compared to last week: Trade on hay slow to moderate under light to moderate demand. Cutting and bailing continues throughout the state. Parts of the state received more scattered rain showers which continue to benefit fields, pastures, and rangelands. These recent rains have helped hay fields green-up and will allow hay producers to get another cutting of hay and continue to let those Farmers with irrigated crops turn off pumps for a while. The rains were needed but in some cases farmers and hay balers had hay down during the showers and are now forced to make chopped hay or lower quality type hay bales instead of horse and dairy quality bales. Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted.

Alfalfa: Small Squares: Delivered: $13-$14 per bale.

Large Squares: Delivered: Premium to Supreme $275-$300; Good to Premium $250-$275.
