Compared to last week: Alfalfa prices were steady to weak. Chopped alfalfa prices were $5 lower. Coastal Bermuda remains unchanged. Trade activity was slow to moderate on light to moderate demand as the colder temperatures boosted buyers’ need for hay. The lowering of alfalfa prices making it difficult to move any other hay in the Panhandle and most feedlots and dairies are stocked with contracted hay. Freezing temperatures in the Panhandle and West Texas did not bring the moisture that is desperately needed. Supplemental feeding of livestock continues as freezing temperatures blasted across the state. Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted.
