Missouri Weekly Hay Summary With fescue seed harvest wrapped up many farmers are now harvesting what forage was left behind the combine. Many areas in the state still seeing storms every few days but as of this report most all flood waters have receded although it would take very little to make the creeks rise again. Farmers in the north east having the hardest time getting hay baled that area remains 20 percent behind normal pace, other areas generally 10-15 percent behind. The positive side is when farmers can get in a field and bale tonnage is very pleasing and even this late in the year moisture has allowed hay quality to remain acceptable.
