Cooler than normal temperatures were much welcomed this week; following the three digit heat indexes from the prior week. Overall the state has had very few days of extreme heat as normally expected this time of year. Pastures are definitely reflecting this as well with nearly all the state being rated at fair to good condition much above average. A few isolated counties around the state would like to see a small rain to ensure more fall growth but those areas are more the exception than the rule as many areas continue to receive more than their share of moisture. Given the fact nearly all farming has been accomplished late this year many farmers are now hoping that the seasons’ first frost follows the same late pattern also. Hay prices are firm; the supply and demand are moderate though demand still good to very good for the higher quality grass and Alfalfa.
