corn and beans but again the pace has been rather slow. The supply of 
hay is moderate, demand is light, and prices are steady to weak. The 
Missouri Department of Agriculture has a hay directory visit

Colorado Hay Report

Compared to last week, trade activity and demand light.  Irrigating is 
in full swing and farmers are getting spring plantings started.  Dairy 
and feedlot hay activity mostly on previously contracted hay.  According 
to the U.S Drought Monitor’s High Plains Summary released April 28, 2020, 
the warm, dry conditions led to an expansion of abnormal dryness (D0) in 
the Dakotas, southwest Nebraska, northwest Kansas, and eastern Colorado. 
Additionally, moderate and severe drought (D1 and D2) expanded over 
Colorado’s eastern plains. This area has failed to receive the timely 
spring rains needed, resulting in reductions in soil moisture, 
streamflow, and vegetation health.  According to the NASS Colorado Crop 
Progress Report for week ending April 26, 2020, crop condition 
percentages for alfalfa hay were rated 3 percent Poor, 21 percent Fair, 
70 percent Good and 6 percent Excellent.  Stored feed supplies were rated 
2 percent very short, 12 percent short, 79 percent adequate, and 7 
percent surplus.  The next available report will be Thursday, May 7, 
2020.  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

Kansas Hay Market Report

Ground/Grinding alfalfa movement:   Southwest/South Central 
Tonnage: 7,782/4,931     Last week: 8,577/5,332  Last year: 7,317/6,081
              
Hay market trade slow; Prices steady; demand light to moderate. It certainly 
has been a wild ride recently.  As one producer stated, "we are in uncharted 
territory".  Several outside influences are applying pressure to the hay 
market currently and include freezing temperatures, insect damage, ethanol 
plant slowdowns or closers, low corn prices and it's use as a feed source to 
grinder hay. Producers report that some are shipping more hay, some are 
shipping less; some want to raise price, and some want to lower price, and it 
all leaves you scratching your head. Discussion of new crop pricing are 
starting to get reported, primarily in the southwest, and seem to be starting 
where old crop left off. The upside, warmer temperatures and sunny skies will 
allow a lot of planting to get done and get the summer grass to growing. 
According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, a new area of abnormally dry 
conditions was introduced in portions of northern and southern Kansas. The 
dry areas are being discussed extensively by the local experts, who are 
monitoring the situation closely. Abnormal dryness (D0) increased to 16 pct, 
moderate drought (D1) remained steady at 4 pct, and severe drought (D2) 
increased to almost 3 pct. If you have any extra hay to sell and/or need hay here

crop hay in South Texas is in line with old crop due to very good demand 
as a result of persistent drought like conditions in the region.  
However, pricing has yet to be established on New Crop hay in West Texas.      
Hay trades in the Panhandle continue to be limited due to uncertainty in 
the cattle markets.  Dairies in the region are liquidating cows as milk 
demand has fallen off in part due to school closures.  Excessive amounts 
of moisture in the Northern and Central regions is hampering the harvest 
of small grain forages and corn and sorghum planting.

   The Texas Department of Agriculture has a Hay and Grazing online 
Hotline setup for Buyers and sellers looking for hay or grazing; The 
online service is free to use and can be found at:

Oklahoma Hay Market Report

Alfalfa and hay trade movement was at a standstill again this week, trade
remains steady.  Most of the Alfalfa quoted at the top of the price
ranges, had to be flawless.  Unseasonably cooler weather has swept across
the trade area early in the week, however temps are expected to return to
normal by the weekend.  Producers are less than a month way from new
crop hay and hoping markets will have come back to some sort of normalcy.  

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 1-405-521-3864 or emailOklahomaCity.LPGMN@usda.gov.
