Weekly Montana Hay Report

Compared to last week: Alfalfa hay sold fully steady. Slow to moderate
market activity was seen this week. Demand for hay is mostly light to moderate
with most large sales moving into neighboring western states. A potentially 
historic early season snow storm is set to hit western Montana this weekend and 
early next week. This has producers scrambling as they try to decide 
to cut or not. Many producers in central and western Montana are still 
cutting second cutting as they saw limited heat units causing hay to grow 
slow and mature late. Late season rains have range and pastures all greened
up which continues to limit demand for hay. All prices below are new crop hay 
unless otherwise noted. All prices are dollars per ton and FOB unless otherwise 
noted.

Weekly Texas Hay Report

   Compared to last report:  All hay classes traded mostly steady.  Trade 
activity was moderate to good with a large variety on the market this 
time of year.  A lot of variation of quality of hay with some hay being 
rained on.  The Panhandle received much needed rain that turned pastures 
back green but Fall is around the corner and livestock owners are in the 
market for hay.  Coastal Bermuda producers in North and East Texas got 
rain so should have another cutting if Army worms don’t get to it first. 
Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted.

Oklahoma Hay Market Report

Alfalfa and hay movement extremely limited.  Not enough for a market trend.
Hay trade has been limited due to the volatility of cattle prices, rain, and 
availability.  Many producers are continuing to battle weeds and work around 
thunderstorms.

Market News continues to maintain an online hay directory for both in-
state and out-of-state hay producers.  The directories are on the ODAFF 
homepage at www.oda.state.ok.us. Producers wishing to list hay are 
encouraged to call at 1-405-232-5425 or email

Missouri Weekly Hay Summary

The official start of fall came this week along with weather that is 
closer to what is considered as normal. Much of the state received some

demand is light and prices are steady to weak.  The Missouri Department 
of Agriculture has a hay directory available for both buyers and sellers.

Colorado Hay Report

   Compared to last week, trade activity and demand light to moderate.  Hay 
producers in the higher elevations are in the thick of 3rd cutting.  Millet 
harvest is wrapping up across the northern part of the state.  Corn sileage is 
getting laid in the pit across the state as well.  According to the U.S Drought 
Monitor’s High Plains Summary released September 24, 2019, most of the region 
remained free of drought, as above-normal temperatures in the east contrasted 
with cool albeit dry conditions in the west. However, Abnormal Dryness (D0) and 
Moderate Drought (D1) were increased in parts of southwestern Kansas as well as 
south-central and western Colorado due to increasingly dry conditions over the 
past 90 days (30-50 percent of normal).  According to the NASS Colorado Crop 
Progress report for week ending September 22, 2019, stored feed supplies were 
rated 3 percent short, 82 percent adequate, and 15 percent surplus with 3rd 
cutting alfalfa progress at 82 percent harvested and 4th cutting at 30 percent 
harvested.  The next available report will be Thursday, October 3, 2019.  All 
prices reported are FOB at the stack or barn unless otherwise noted.  Prices 
reflect load lots of hay.  If you have hay for sale or need hay, use the 
services of the Colorado Department of Agriculture website:

Kansas Hay Market Report

Ground/Grinding alfalfa movement:   Southwest/South Central 
Tonnage: 10,593/6,465     Last week: 8,613/6,452      Last year: 8,844/3,406
             
Hay market trade was slow to moderate, demand was slow, and prices mostly 
steady. Lower quality alfalfa is softer; however, higher quality forages seem to 
be holding their value.  It is a busy time for farmers, everyone seems to be 
juggling a lot of different balls this time of year; haying, harvesting, 
planting and working ground.  But fear not, the hay season that seems to be 
dragging on is rapidly coming to an end. Many hay producers state they should be 
finished in the next 2 to 3 weeks.  Abnormally dry (D0) and moderate drought 
(D1) conditions worsened in the past week for the southwest region, with D0 at 
15 pct. and D1 near 3 pct. If you have any extra hay to sell and/or need hay

Hay Market Demand and Price Report for the Upper Midwest

Demand and Sales Comments
Hay prices are steady with limited activity at the auctions. There is demand for top quality hay with a limited supply. Delayed killing frost in northern areas will allow more growth into fall and a later harvest than in a normal year. Connect to the Farmer-to-Farmer webpage at http://farmertofarmer.uwex.edu/ to place an ad for your forage need or if you have to forage or straw to sell. Contact your local county agriculture educator if you need help placing an ad. There is no charge for the service.

Straw prices are for oat, barley, or wheat straw. Prices are steady this week. Small square bales
averaged $3.70 a bale (range of $1.00 to $6.00). Large square bale straw averaged $55.00 per bale (a wide range of $28.00 to $97.00). Large round bale straw averaged $50.00 per bale (a range of $30.00 - $70.00).

For Nebraska, hay sold unevenly steady, demand is light. Silage chopping is a full go this week. In
Iowa, prices were higher this week with lower quality hay arriving at the market. Many farmers are
looking to make one more cutting this fall.

In South Dakota, prices are steady with limited sales. Good demand for top quality hay, with little
interest on lower quality.

In Missouri, hay movement remains slow with steady to lower prices. There is still some grass hay
making continuing in the state.

In Southwest Minnesota, prices were steady, with light demand and a limited supply. In Kansas,
demand is slow, with steady prices. There is a softer undertone for grinding hay as there is an
abundance of lower quality hay.

In Wisconsin, prices remain strong for quality hay. Quality hay supplies remain tight with a good
supply of lower quality hay.

activity was seen again this week as ranchers are slow to buy. Late 
season rains continue again this week as many places around the state
received around an inch with more on the way for the weekend. This has 
been very beneficial for range and pasture conditions, but has curbed
demand for hay. Many producers in central Montana continue to have 
issues putting hay up. Some even have yet to cut second cutting. This 
is proving problematic as late rains and cool temperatures are keeping 
producers from cutting. All prices below are new crop hay unless otherwise 
noted. All prices are dollars per ton and FOB unless otherwise noted.
