Friday, Aug. 9

Compared to last week: Trade and demand on hay moderate over most of the state. Cutting and bailing continues especially in areas that received ample rainfall over the last several weeks. A few areas of the state continued to receive scattered showers this past week ranging from traces to several inches. However, most of the state has been in summer conditions with winds and triple digit hot temperatures and any surplus moisture from previous rains is being depleted.

Grasshopper and Armyworm infestations continued to be a nuisance to farmers in some areas and spraying is underway. Rangeland, pastures, and fields are greatly improved in most all regions from the earlier rains but the latest triple digit extreme temperatures and winds will likely stress grasses. Furthermore, supplemental feeding of livestock has been noted in several areas where pastures are stressed and where drought continues. Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted.
