Friday, Nov. 2 Compared to last report: All hay classes traded mostly steady. Movement continues to be hampered by muddy conditions, but recent rain has benefited wheat pastures. CRP and Hay Grazer were trickling onto the market and cheapening ration costs. Some coastal Bermuda producers in South Texas have been able to get into their fields to bale the fourth cutting. Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted.
