Missouri Weekly Hay Summary Week ending 01/04/2013 The limited supply of hay within Missouri has left in-state sales at a standstill with the only consistent hay movement being from the barn to the ring. Some hay is still moving from the Southeast states and may be enough to carry through the producers who are short-bought. With the turning of the calendar comes the counting to spring rather than the pessimism about the length of winter. Hay supplies in Missouri are light, demand is moderate and prices are steady. The 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/haydirectory/ or for current listings of hay http://agebb.missouri.edu/haylst/ (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). Premium Alfalfa (RFV 170-185) 200.00-275.00 Fair to Good quality Alfalfa (RFV 130-170) 160.00-225.00 Good quality Mixed Grass hay 100.00-190.00 Fair to Good quality Mixed Grass hay 100.00-145.00 Fair quality Mixed Grass hay 55.00-95.00 per large round bale Wheat straw 3.00-6.00 per small square bale Corn Stalks/Stover 60.00-100.00 per ton, 25.00-40.00 large round
