(PRICES PER BU. EXCEPT GR. SORG. PER CWT) *NEW CROP

Farmers in the northern third of the state are still battling with tough winter conditions, snow cover and thick ice which has been around for what seems like forever. Many farmers in the southern part of the state are preparing fertilizer buggies as spreading will be in full swing very shortly. Hay piles have become much smaller to non-existent on some farms as the demands of a long winter have taken a lot of hay for cattle to survive. The supply of hay is moderate, demand moderate and prices mostly steady. Missouri Department of Agriculture has a hay directory available for both buyers and sellers. To be listed, or for a directory, visit, http://mda.mo.gov/abd/hay directory (All prices f.o.b. and per ton unless specified and on most recent reported sales prices listed as round bales based generally on 5x6 bales with weights of approximately 1200-1500 lbs) Supreme quality Alfalfa (RFV>185) 150.00-185.00.
