Compared to last week: Hay prices were mostly unchanged this week. Chopped alfalfa prices were 5.00-10.00 lower. Trade activity was slow on light to moderate demand with it being the time of year where most dairies and feedlots are stocked and producers clean out their barns. The Panhandle and West Texas are hoping the cold front will bring some much needed moisture for winter wheat pastures. As the cold front approaches the eastern and southern part of the state, hay is moving at a slightly higher rate for supplemental feeding. Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted.

North, Central, & East Texas

Alfalfa: Large Squares: Delivered: Premium to Supreme $280-$315.

Coastal Bermuda: Small Squares: FOB: Good to Premium $200-$265, $6-$8 per bale; Fair to Good $135-$165, $4-$5 per bale.

Large Rounds: FOB: Good to Premium $60-$80 per roll, $120-$160 per ton; Good $40-$50 per roll, $80-$100 per ton.

South Texas Hay Report

Coastal Bermuda: Small squares: FOB: Good to Premium $230-$265, $7-$8 per bale; Fair to Good $165-$230, $5-$7 per bale.

Large rounds: FOB and delivered locally: Good to Premium $120-$140; $60-$70 per roll. Grass Mix: $55 per roll.
