Hay & Forage report
Friday, June 13
Compared to last week: Hay prices were steady this week. Trade activity was moderate on moderate to good demand. Most of the state including the drought stricken Panhandle received some much needed rainfall over the past weekend. The recent rain made hay movement difficult but very beneficial for future crops. Freight costs remains to be a driving force in steady prices. Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted.
