Friday, July 25

Compared to last week: All hay prices were mostly steady. Trade activity was slow on light to moderate demand. Rain across the state has benefited local pastures and the need for hay has gone down. The rain has also caused a lot of brown ground Alfalfa to be available on the market. Sources believe there will be plenty of hay grazer coming into the market in the next few weeks that will help keep prices down for dairies’ feed rations. East and South Texas report plenty of high quality Coastal Bermuda available but input costs are keeping prices steady. Freight continues to keep spreads wide considering it depends on how far the hay is going to be hauled. 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.
