Friday, June 27

Compared to last week: Alfalfa hay prices were weak to $10 lower as rain continues to bring the top end prices down. Other hay classes remained mostly steady. Trade activity was light to moderate on moderate demand. Rain across the state continues to be a welcomed sight even if it means wet hay on the ground for producers in the east and south. Rain has made some producers late on baling their first cutting. Wheat hay has become hard to find as some buyers wait for cheaper hay such as hay grazer to become available. Cattle have been turned out on grass therefore the demand for hay has decreased. Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted.

North, Central, & East Texas

Alfalfa: Small Squares: FOB: Premium to Supreme $230, $7 per bale; Grass/Alfalfa $5 per bale.

Coastal Bermuda: Small Squares: FOB: Good to Premium $230-$265, $7-$8 per bale.

Large Rounds: FOB: Good to Premium $60-$75 per roll, $120-$150 per ton; Good $50 per roll, $100 per ton.

Rye Hay: Large Rounds: FOB: $40 per bale.

South Texas Hay Report

Coastal Bermuda: Small squares: FOB: Good to Premium $230-$265, $7-$8 per bale; Fair to Good $165-$200, $5-$6 per bale.

Large rounds: FOB and delivered locally: Good to Premium $120-$130; $60-$65 per roll.

The Texas Department of Agriculture has Hay and Grazing Hot Line set up for buyers and sellers looking for hay or grazing; the number is 1-877-429-1998. The website for the hotline is: www.TexasAgriculture.gov/hayhotline.
