Hay & Forage report for Aug. 16
Friday, Aug. 16
Compared to last week: Trade and demand on hay continues slow to moderate this week. Cutting and bailing continues but many balers trying to work around scattered rain showers over the state. However in some cases hay has been down resulting in wet bales. Wet hay hard to move and discounted accordingly. Producers forced to make lower quality bales instead of selling for high quality horse or dairy type bales. Rangeland, pastures, and fields are greatly improved in most all Regions from the earlier rains but those areas not receiving these very recent rains are beginning to dry and show summer stress on grasses. Even though most Regions have had beneficial rains the drought still continues in some areas. Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted. . . .
