Missouri Weekly Hay Summary After an extended period of dry weather, rains once again fell in some areas this past week putting a hold on haying. Given this years odd conditions farmers have done all they can trying to get hay harvested. As a whole harvest is about 2 weeks behind and it is likely that unless summer weather stays longer than normal this fall alfalfa farmers will lose a cutting and some grass might end up as pasture. There is a good supply of hay entering the market currently so any farmers looking to buy before snow falls shouldn’t have any problems with finding suitable beef quality hay. Hay prices are firm; the supply and demand are moderate.
