Friday, July 18

Compared to last week: All hay prices were steady to weak. Trade activity was slow to moderate on light to moderate demand. Dairies continue to back off the market since milk prices have come down. Freight continues to play a key factor in how far brokers are willing to haul hay in order to cover their costs. East and South Texas have a good crop of Coastal Bermuda that have benefited from rain in the area. 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, $7 per bale.

Large Rounds: FOB: Good to Premium $60-$75 per roll, $120-$150 per ton, Fair to Good $45-$50 per roll, $90-100 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-$170; $60-$85 per roll; Fair to Good $100; $50 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.
