Compared to last week, not enough new sales of any class or quality of hay
for accurate trend comparison, undertone is weaker, instances 10.00-20.00 lower
on retail/stable hay. Demand is light and supply is light on higher testing hay
but moderate to heavy for dry cow/feeder hay. Demand for retail/stable hay is
light to moderate and supply moderate with barns still fairly full. Weather has
been very mild and warm, causing the hay to grow faster than most producersÂ’
desire, consequently, will be seeing new clippings two to three weeks earlier
than usual.
