Hay & Forage report
Friday, March 14
Compared to last week: Hay prices were unchanged as hay movement remains quiet except for some hay moving due to the cold snaps and contracted hay. Trade activity and demand were light to moderate. The Panhandle and west Texas remain in a drought with little chance of moisture in sight. Supplemental feeding continues to get livestock through the cold breaks in the temperature. Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted.
