DUE TO THE THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY, THE NEXT REPORT WILL BE ISSUED 
DECEMBER 10, 2019.

*****HAPPY THANKSGIVING*****
                         
Ground/Grinding alfalfa movement:   Southwest/South Central 
Tonnage: 8,591/8,635    Last week: 9,760/9,414     Last year: 7,874/3,614
               
Hay market trade is slow to moderate, demand was slow to moderate, and prices 
remain steady. Drought continues to plague the western regions of the state. 
According to the US Drought Monitor, a new sliver of extreme drought (D3) was 
added in southwestern Kansas, where several locations have reported less than 
one-half inch of precipitation since September 1. Reported precipitation 
values are less than 15% of normal. In the driest areas, winter wheat has 
struggled to emerge and become established, with the recent cold wave being a 
complicating factor. The Kansas Forage and Grassland Council is having their 
annual conference on December 10 in Wichita. Visit their website at 
www.ksfgc.org for more information and registration. If you have any extra 
hay to sell and/or need hay here in Kansas, use the services of the Internet 
Hay Exchange: www.hayexchange.com/ks.php.

South Dakota Weekly Hay Summary

All prices per ton, unless noted, FOB the stack.

   ***Note, this report will not be released again until Dec. 6, 2019***

   Compared to last week:  Alfalfa hay steady.  Other kinds of hay
not well compared.  Very good demand for dairy quality hay in large
squares, most notably from out of state dairies that were not able to put
up high quality dry hay this year.  Only moderate demand for lower
quality round bales as there is a much greater supply.  It was very 
difficult to put up hay properly this summer which resulted in rained
on hay or hay that wasn’t cured fully.  The supply of really nice,
high quality large squares of hay is much harder to come by and is
resulting in a market that is very active.  Good demand for straw.  Few
corn stalks have been baled yet as the ground is muddy and the stalks are
wet.  All hay and straw sold by the ton FOB, unless otherwise noted.

   Alfalfa:  Supreme:  Large Squares, 300.00.  Premium:  Large Squares,
250.00; Small Squares, 6.00 per bale.  Good to Premium:  Large Squares,

Weekly Texas Hay Report

   Compared to last report: Hay trades were steady on good demand and 
moderate to active trading activity.  Hay demand is continuing to pickup 
as feeding demand picks up.  Producers are stocking up on feeders for 
wheat pasture as large consignments of stocker cattle have been offered 
at local auctions.  A large supply of hay is on the market, but there’s a 
wide variety in the quality of hay due to sporadic weather during the 
growing season.  Hay quality continues to be the largest determiner in 
price.  ***No report next week due to Thanksgiving holiday, report will 
resume Friday, November 29th.***

Missouri Weekly Hay Summary

Week ending 11/22/19

Although there was still some cold nights a few warmer than average days 
this past week took some of the frost out of the ground and made the 
ground soft on top for those trying to feed or get around.  Some feeding 
is taking place but nothing in the way of full diets yet as most still 
have some stockpiled grazing available. Hay movement continues to be slow 
other than some equine owners looking for a few small bales at a time.  
Hay supplies are moderate with ample supplies being offered for sale, 
demand is light and prices are steady.  The Missouri Department of 
Agriculture has a hay directory available for both buyers and sellers.

State-By-State Hay Summary

Colorado—Compared to last week, trade activity and demand moderate. In southwest Colorado, high quality hay supplies of horse hay are dwindling while mid to low quality supplies are readily available. Trade activity is increasing in the San Luis Valley on Dairy hay and retail hay.
Iowa—Prices for supreme and premium alfalfa and alfalfa/grass mixes maintained their prices regardless of packaging. However, the pricing for large round bales began to slide lower. This price slide may be associated with the declining quality of grasses.
Kansas—Hay market trade was slow to moderate, demand was slow to moderate, and prices remain steady. Hay producers report that there has been a little more interest from buyers and a few more loads moving to the feed yards. Supplies of high-quality hay remain short, but here seems to be plenty of grinder hay.
Missouri—Overall hay movement is pretty slow in the state, some small bales of horse hay but that is really about it currently. Hay supplies are moderate, demand is light and prices are steady.
Montana—Alfalfa hay sold fully steady this week. Slow to moderate market activity was seen this week. Producers selling squares were not as active this week as many take a week or two to assess inventories. Demand for squares to ship east remains good as hay supplies in Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin remain tight. Hay in rounds continues to move as ranchers are buying hay as they sell calves. Round hay supplies remain large. Straw sales continue to be seen at steady prices.
Nebraska—Compared to last week alfalfa, grass hay and ground and delivered hay sold steady. Some contacts have had quite a few calls and other stated the phone has been slow this week. A lot of cornstalks and bean stubble is getting baled.
New Mexico—Compared to last week, alfalfa hay large bales prices steady. Trade limited, demand moderate. Regions in the sixth cutting. Temperatures dropped across the state slowing growth. Rain reported in some areas of the state.
Oklahoma—Alfalfa and hay trade continues very slow. Very limited sales are steady. Dairy hay trade is light due to weak milk prices. At the moment, much of the alfalfa hay would be going to horse outlets and that would be in limited quantities. Many dairies already have their needed supplies. Any grass hay that is moving is only fair in quality because it has weeds or has been rained on a few times. This slow movement is expected to continue until these folks run out of their current supply of hay.
South Dakota—Alfalfa hay remains steady to firm, especially for large squares. Demand very good for high quality hay of all kinds, best demand is for large square bales bound for out of state buyers. The demand for round bales is much lower as this supply is much more plentiful.
Texas—Hay trades were mostly steady to firm on good demand and trading activity. Hay demand is continuing to increase as colder temperatures continue to move across the state. Supplemental winter feeding is taking place in most regions.
Wyoming—Compared to last alfalfa on the eastern side of the state sold steady to $5 higher. Other reporting areas traded steady on the week. Demand was moderate for local sales with good demand noted on hay leaving the state. Few hay producers are waiting for their final cutting of alfalfa to dry out so they can bale it.

Compared to last week: Alfalfa hay sold fully steady again this week. Slow 
market activity was seen this week for squares. However, demand for squares 
remains good with most sales leaving the state. Hay supplies in Minnesota, Iowa, 
Illinois, and Wisconsin continue to tighten as farmers buy hay for winter needs. 
Hay in rounds saw moderate movement again this week as ranchers continue to 
buy hay to cover winter feeding needs. Round hay supplies remain large, however 
producers have seen good movement over the last few weeks. Straw sales continue 
to be seen at steady prices. All prices are dollars per ton and FOB unless 
otherwise noted.

Weekly Texas Hay Report

   Compared to last report: Hay trades were steady on good demand and 
moderate to active trading activity.  Demand for hay is continuing to 
pickup as we get further into fall.  A large supply of hay is on the 
market, but there’s a wide variety in the quality of hay due to sporadic 
weather during the growing season.  Hay quality continues to be the 
largest determiner in price.

   The Texas Department of Agriculture has Hay and Grazing phone set
