Hay & Forage Report
Friday, Dec. 4
Compared to last report: Most classes of hay traded steady this week except for ground alfalfa traded about $5 lower. Movement was moderate after the Panhandle experienced a freezing rain for several days. Temperatures were back in the 50’s by mid-week leaving a muddy mess making it difficult to get hay in and out. North, East, and South Texas have yet to experience a heavy frost and after recent rains some pastures have turned back green which has limited supplemental feeding of livestock. Coastal Bermuda producers are keeping prices steady for now but predict lowering prices to make room for new crop since they are not having to feed much to their own livestock. Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted. . . .
