Weekly Montana Hay Report

***This report will not be published on December 27th or Jan 3rd due to the Christmas and 
New Years holidays. The next published date will be Jan 10th 2020.***

Compared to last week: Alfalfa hay sold fully steady. Supplies of high quality alfalfa 
in squares are tight. Local hay sales continue to move hand to mouth on an as needed
basis. Local hay sales were moderate to heavy this week as ranchers are busy purchasing 
hay on this year’s taxes. Old crop hay continues to sell at steady money with several large
purchases seen this week. Supplies of old crop hay have started to dwindle as ranchers 
continue to purchase this hay at a discount to new crop. Demand for squares to ship east 
to the Midwest remains good. Much of the hay sold this week was fair to good quality, and
most sales are north of 200.00 delivered. Straw purchases remain active. Straw sold steady
to firm. All prices are dollars per ton and FOB unless otherwise noted.

Weekly Texas Hay Report

   Compared to last report:  Hay trades were mostly steady.  Buyer 
demand was good on moderate to active trading activity.  Hay quality 
continues to be the largest determiner in price.  Snow and colder weather 
fell in the Northern counties of the Panhandle, while severe 
thunderstorms plagued the Southeast Regions of the state.  According to 
the Texas Crop and Weather Report, pasture conditions continue to decline 
statewide as warm-season grasses continue to go dormant.  Some late hay 
was cut in Southeast Texas.  Cool-season forages have germinated, but 
more moisture is needed to initiate growth.  Winter wheat has emerged in 
fair condition in the Panhandle and in good condition in North Texas.  
However, in the Far West winter wheat is still too short for grazing.

*** No report for the next two weeks due to the holidays ***

   The Texas Department of Agriculture has Hay and Grazing phone set

Hay market trade is moderate, demand was slow to moderate, prices remain steady 
and most producers have reported that there is still plenty of grinder hay out 
there. Winter finally arrived for much of the state on Sunday into Monday, with 
some areas topping nearly 12 inches of snow. The areas needing the most 
precipitation, however, received less than an inch. According to the U.S. 
Drought Monitor, Kansas continues to struggle with moisture deficits that have 
been present for more than three months. During the past week, the abnormal 
dryness (D0), moderate drought (D1), and severe drought (D2) were expanded to 
reflect the increasing dryness and its impact on winter wheat. If you have any 
extra hay to sell and/or need hay here in Kansas, use the services of the

Weekly Texas Hay Report

   Compared to last report:  Hay trades were mostly steady to firm on 
higher quality hays and steady to weak on lower quality hays.  Buyer 
demand was good on moderate to active trading activity.  Hay quality 
continues to be the largest determiner in price.  A large portion of the 
good hay has traded leaving a lot of low-quality hay on the market.  
According to the Texas Crop and Weather Report, pasture conditions 
continue to decline statewide as warm-season grasses continue to go 
dormant.  Some late hay was cut in Southeast Texas.  Cool-season forages 
have germinated, but more moisture is needed to initiate growth.  Winter 
wheat has emerged in fair condition in the Panhandle and in good 
condition in North Texas.  However, in the Far West winter wheat is still 
too short for grazing.

   The Texas Department of Agriculture has Hay and Grazing phone set 
up for Buyers and sellers looking for hay or grazing; the number is 1-
512-787-9966. The website for the hotline is:
