Hay & Forage report for Sept. 27
Friday, Sept. 27
Compared to last week: Hay prices remain mostly steady with slow trade activity on light to moderate demand. Most dairies and feedlots are stocked for now and holding off on purchasing more hay. Most of the state received some much needed rainfall from the hurricane in the gulf. Many producers are hoping this will benefit their last coastal bermuda cutting of the season and recently planted winter wheat pastures. Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted.
