South Dakota Weekly Hay Summary

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

   Compared to last week:  Alfalfa and grass hay steady.  Good
demand for all types and qualities of hay, but demand for the high
quality alfalfa and grass is vastly better than it is for the lower
qualities.  Supplies of high quality hay are much more limited.
The weather moderated this week with temps average to above average 
making it easier to get hay dug out and trucks loaded.  There is a good
amount of snow cover across much of the state, keeping the need for
supplemental feeding of beef cows.  Good demand remains for straw and
corn stalks.  All hay and straw sold by the ton FOB, unless otherwise
noted.

Weekly Texas Hay Report

   Compared to last report:  Hay trades are mostly steady to firm.  Hay 
demand in South Texas is very good as drought conditions continue in the 
region.  According to the US Drought Monitor, the Severe to Extreme 
drought categories in South and East Texas increased from 10.76% to 
14.12%.  As a result, supplemental feeding in these regions is in full 
swing, with some producers beginning to cull deeper into their herds to 
combat the conditions.  In the Panhandle and West Texas, the weather has 
been very mild, which has slowed hay demand as producers are 
supplementing less than in previous years.  The US Drought Monitor 
reported bands of 2 plus inches of precipitation in North and Central 
Texas this week.  Hay trade has slowed some in these regions as producers 
are having a hard time loading out customers due to mud.      

   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:

Colorado Hay Report

   Compared to last week, trade activity and demand moderate.  According 
to the U.S Drought Monitor’s High Plains Summary released January 28, 
2020, much of the High Plains region had less than a tenth of an inch of 
precipitation this week. Half an inch or more fell across southeastern 
Nebraska to southern Kansas and in the mountains of Colorado and western 
Wyoming, with pockets of 0.25-0.50 inch elsewhere. Although 6-month 
precipitation deficits are still significant, D2 was deleted in western 
and southern Colorado where recent precipitation made 1 to 3-month 
precipitation deficits and drought indicators less severe and where 
mountain snowpack was near normal.  Reports from eastern Colorado 
indicate that the recent lack of precipitation is deteriorating 
conditions. Topsoil is blowing about in the wind, and winter wheat needs 
more moisture before green-up, so this area will be watched for 
deterioration in the coming weeks. Based on USDA reports, topsoil 
moisture was short to very short (dry to very dry) across 61% of 
Colorado, 32% of Kansas, and 24% of Wyoming; 23% of the pasture and 
rangeland was in poor to very poor condition in Colorado; and 24% of 
Colorado’s winter wheat and 23% of winter wheat in Kansas was in poor to 
very poor condition. USDA reports from Colorado’s southeastern counties 
included: “conditions were noted as extremely dry and moisture was 
needed. A reporter noted high winds severely damaged or blew out winter 
wheat stands in [some] areas. Livestock were being heavily supplemented.”  
According to the USDA NRCS Colorado SNOTEL Snow/Precipitation Update 
Report for Thursday, January 30, 2020, snow water equivalent basin index 
percentages:  Gunnison 105; Upper Colorado 108; South Platte 110; Laramie 
and North Platte 105; Yampa and White 114; Arkansas 112; Upper Rio Grande 
108; San Miguel, Delores, Animas and San Juan 107.  The next available 
report will be Thursday, January 30, 2020.  All prices reported are FOB 
at the stack or barn unless otherwise noted.  Prices reflect load lots of

Iowa—In the Jan. 7 report, compared to last report, prices on alfalfa, alfalfa/grass and grass was $15 to $25 per ton lower.
Kansas—As of Jan. 21, the hay market trade is slow, demand was slow, and prices remain steady.
Missouri—In the Jan. 16 report, the supply of hay is moderate to heavy, demand is light to moderate and prices are steady. Final year end production numbers were released late last week and 2019 stocks were higher than any state in nation up nearly 65% from the very difficult year of 2018.  
Montana—In the Jan. 17 report, alfalfa hay was fully steady. Supplies in squares continue to lighten, however round supplies remain moderate. Demand for hay to ship out of the state lightened slightly over the last few weeks. In state hay sales were mostly active this week with ranchers and horse hay buyers actively purchasing hay. 
Nebraska—In the Jan. 16 report, all baled hay, ground and delivered hay and alfalfa pellets sold steady. Demand remains mostly light on baled hay products with good demand for alfalfa pellets. Most contacts have stated there has been a lot of alfalfa hay on the market this week and some of the “big” buyers don’t know if they should continue to stock pile inventory or pass on procuring hay. 
New Mexico—Hay reporting has ended for the season. Reports will resume May 2020.
Oklahoma—In the Jan. 16 report, alfalfa and hay trade movement was light to moderate this week. Demand remains good as a much more winter weather has finally arrived, leaving sellers with much needed hope of increase in hay movement. A steady undertone was noted on very limited to light comparable trades. 
South Dakota—In the Jan. 17 report alfalfa hay and grass hay remain firm. Good demand for all types and qualities of hay and bedding. Very good demand still exists for high feed value alfalfa, supplies of that type of hay is limited. Much more plentiful supply of lower feed value hay as it was so difficult this haying season to make high quality hay. Still good demand from out of state hay buyers. 
Texas—In the Jan. 17 report, hay trades are mostly steady to firm. Feeding demand has continued to pick up as supplemental feeding is in full swing in most regions. Hay quality continues to be the largest determiner on price. 
Wyoming—In the Jan. 16 report, compared to last week reported hay sales sold steady. Bulk of the dairy and mid-range testing hay in large squares has been sold. Still some lower quality hay in large squares and rounds left across most areas of the state. Most small squares are getting cleaned out of the barns and mostly heading out of state with some local sales prevailing.

Weekly Texas Hay Report

   Compared to last report:  Hay trades are mostly steady to firm.  
Demand for high quality horse/dairy quality hay is very good, which has 
caused that market to firm up as we move farther into the feeding season.  
Cow and grinder type hay for feedlots remains very steady as there is 
still a lot of streaked or rained on hay on the market.  Freezing rain 
blanketed the Panhandle last Friday, which brought some much-needed 
moisture to the winter wheat crop.  According to USDA-NASS, winter wheat 
seedings are forecasted at 4.90 million acres in Texas, which is up 9 
percent from last year.     

   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:
