heaviest precipitation, most notably central Kansas where many areas received 
2-6 inches of rainfall. Abnormal dryness (D0) decreased to 31 pct, moderate

extreme drought (D3) remained steady at 5 pct. If you have any extra hay to sell

State By State Hay Summary

Colorado—In the June 18 report, compared to last week, trade activity and demand light. Northeast Colorado first cutting haylage complete and growers wrapping up baling in dry, windy conditions. Producers in southwest Colorado are wrapping up first cutting grass and alfalfa hay while battling dry, windy conditions. Southeast Colorado is battling D3 drought conditions.

Iowa—In the June 9 report, for the reporting period May 25 to June 5, compared to last report, prices on all classes of hay steady to weak.

Kansas—In the June 23 report, the hay market trade was slow and demand light, prices remain fairly steady but with an undertone of strength. A few more trades and inquiries were reported and likely due to the pressure of the worsening drought.

Missouri—In the June 17 report, hay prices are mostly steady. The supply of hay is moderate, and demand is light. Weather has allowed a lot of hay to be baled, and some have already finished and are on to hauling. As normal a lot of hay coming to the market now but movement is slow.

Montana—In the June 12 report, compared to the last report alfalfa hay sold fully steady on very light movement. Mixed hay in rounds sold $10 to $15 lower as some producers sell heavy volumes of hay to make room for this years crop. Demand for new crop hay is mostly moderate to good. However no established prices have been made as producers wait to see what quality will look like once its in the stack. Due to very light sales receipts this report will be released bi-monthly until early August when heavier receipts can be confirmed. Next report release will be June 26.

Nebraska—In the June 18 report, compared to last week, new crop dairy alfalfa sold steady to firm, rounds and old crop alfalfa and grass hay steady. Dehydrated pellets and ground and delivered hay steady. Demand was good for new crop dairy quality hay with mostly light demand on all other classes. Hot, try, windy weather has hindered dryland hay and crops, but native prairie grass producers have been able to bale for the first time in 3 years in places.

New Mexico—In the June 19 report, compared to last week, alfalfa hay prices were steady to $10 higher, with north central region trading $15-$30 higher going to dairies. Trade moderate to active, demand moderate to good. The southern and southwestern regions are in their third cutting. The eastern and southeastern regions are finished with the second cutting. Rain reported in parts of the state but some areas still remain mostly dry.

Oklahoma—In the June 18 report, alfalfa and hay trade movement has increased over the week, mostly cow hay and small squares. Wheat hay across the state is and or has been harvested. However as of now no true price has been established. Heat and no rain is in the forecast and many producers are expecting prices to get higher if rain doesn’t come soon. Producers are reporting that finding a true value is difficult for new crop as many continue to clean out their barns from last season and those prices continue to fall. Small square bales of grass hay continues to move at a rapid pace.

South Dakota—In the June 19 report, compared to last week, alfalfa and grass hay fully steady. Good to very good demand from dairies looking for high testing alfalfa, more moderate for other qualities and types of hay. The weather was ideal for first cutting of alfalfa and grass which allowed for some very high quality hay to be put up without any rain on it. Rain fell this week across a good portion of the state, bringing much needed relief to some dry areas. The temps have cooled and the high winds have calmed making for good growing conditions now for regrowth of cut fields.

Texas—In the June 19 report, compared to last report, hay trades are mostly steady in all regions. All regions reported hot and dry conditions, most accompanied by extreme winds. Weather conditions have diminished topsoil conditions across much of the state. The silver lining in the hot and dry weather is it has allowed producers to get second cutting up.

Wyoming—In the June 18 report, compared to last week, old crop small squares and hay cubes steady. No comparison for new crop hay. Most of first cutting is wrapped up in the eastern side of the state and most reported tonnage is 30% to 50% less than last year. Western parts of the state are just getting to cut hay. Several factors hurting the tons is dry weather and having a hard time keeping enough water on the fields. Late frost in April slowed the plant up a lot and weevils have moved in several fields across the state.

Weekly Montana Hay Report

***Next report release will be July 10th***

Compared to the last report: Not enough new crop hay has sold to fully establish the
market. Demand was mostly good. Old crop hay sold sharply higher as demand from buyers 
from drought stricken areas in central Wyoming increased hay prices. Early hay yields 
have been lower than normal as produces site dry conditions along with weevils and 
grasshoppers as the leading causes. Demand for hay to ship north to Canada has been 
moderate to good as they search for hay due to dry conditions in Saskatchewan. According 
to the drought monitor 14.51% of Montana is in a moderate drought, an increase of 9.87% 
in the last 2 weeks. 52.26% is abnormally dry this week, an increase of 2.07% in the last 
two weeks. Rain is in the forecast for much of the state over the weekend and early next 
week. All prices are dollars per ton and FOB unless otherwise noted.

Weekly Texas Hay Report

Compared to last report:  Hay trades are mostly steady to firm in all 
regions.  According to the US Drought Monitor, drought conditions have 
improved in the Southern and Central regions of the state.  However, 
above-normal temperatures, high wind events, and below-normal 
precipitation leading up to this week has led to high evapotranspiration 
rates and hardened soils, increasing runoff.  This has expanded the 
drought area in the Panhandle and West Texas.  The Texas A&M Forest 
Service is concerned arid weather will create conditions for a severe 
late-summer wildfire season.  Poor pasture conditions in the Panhandle 
and the West has many producers culling deeper into their herds as 
supplemental feeding has become the new norm.  Areas in the North 
received up to 5 inches of rain with these recent storms, but rainfall 
amounts varied significantly across the area.  

   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:

Colorado Hay Report

Compared to last week, trade activity and demand light to moderate.  
Northeast Colorado growers and buyers finding a bottom to the price point 
of dairy and feedlot hay as some growers are holding out for better 
offers.  Southeast Colorado cattleman committed to keeping core herds 
have been buying supplemental forage recently to get them through the 
summer months as pasture and range conditions continue to deteriorate.  
In the San Luis Valley, trade inactive on dairy quality alfalfa as 
producers and buyers are still working to agree on pricing.  Horse 
quality grass hay prices firm on light trade activity.  Producers in 
southwest Colorado are wrapping up 1st cutting grass and alfalfa hay 
while battling dry, windy conditions.  Yields for 1st cutting alfalfa are 
lower than expected due to late freeze, firming up dairy hay market 
prices for growers.    In the Mountains and Northwest Colorado regions, 
hay producers are holding out for better market conditions on carry-over 
horse quality hay.  According to the U.S Drought Monitor’s High Plains 
Summary released June 23, 2020; similar to the Southern and Central 
Plains, many areas in the High Plains Region have fallen victim to above-
normal temperatures, high winds, and a lack of precipitation in recent 
weeks.  Soil moisture also continues to suffer across western North 
Dakota, much of Wyoming, and all of Colorado (CPC showing soil moisture 
below the 5th percentile for much of Colorado).  Colorado has reported 
several episodes of 100-degree days in the southeast portion of the state 
in recent weeks, as well as cattle being sold and failing winter wheat 
crops. As such, severe drought (D3) is status quo this week for southern 
and southeastern Colorado.  According to the NASS Colorado Crop Progress 
Report for week ending June 21, 2020, 1st cutting harvested alfalfa hay 
is at 75 percent, 2nd cutting at 2 percent with crop condition 
percentages for alfalfa hay rated 10 percent Very Poor, 12 percent Poor,

Wyoming Hay Summary

Week ending June 26, 2020
Compared to last week all reported hay sold fully steady. Will this 
hay market move higher as dry weather continues across the state and 
adjoining regions? That was a common topic on this week’s calls.  Time 
will tell.  Several reports that local demand is very good and along with 
good out of state inquiry. Most producers are done with first cutting in 
the Eastern side of the state and the producers in the West are getting 
in full swing this week. With very few showers, in most areas there were 
a few reports that irrigation districts have started to limit water to 
customers. With limited water if the rains don’t come second cutting 
tonnage will be shorter than most are counting on. NOTE: “All prices are 
dollars per ton FOB the field or hay barn unless otherwise noted.”

Missouri Weekly Hay Summary

Week ending 6/26/20

The rains forecasted for the last week failed to fall for most areas. 
There was some pockets and spots that received some downpours but nothing 
widespread. According to the latest crop progress report hay harvest is 
slightly ahead of the five-year average which isn’t a big surprise to 
anyone given the unusually long window of decent weather over the last 
month. Farmers are glad to be able to get work done and although the 
drought monitor looks mostly blank for the state there are some thinking 
a nice inch of rain sure wouldn’t hurt nothing. hay movement is mostly 
slow but there is some hay being sold out of the fields around the state 
as many farmers are bailing more than they know they will need for winter 
feeding. Hay prices are mostly steady. The supply of hay is moderate to 
heavy, and demand is light. The Missouri Department 
of Agriculture has a hay directory visit 
http://mda.mo.gov/abd/haydirectory/ for listings of 
hay http://agebb.missouri.edu/haylst/ (All prices f.o.b.

Hay market trade slow and demand light, prices remain fairly steady but with 
an undertone of strength. A few more trades and inquiries were reported and 
likely due to the pressure of the worsening drought. The abnormal heat, low 
humidity, and gusty winds has exacerbated the lack of precipitation. Good 
news however, many areas welcomed rain over the weekend and were thankful to 
receive it, but is it too little, too late? According to the U.S. Drought 
Monitor, abnormal dryness (D0) increased to 33 pct, moderate drought (D1) 
increased to 22 pct, severe drought (D2) decreased to 8 pct and extreme

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

   Compared to last week:  Alfalfa and grass hay fully steady.

very high quality hay to be put up without any rain on it.  Rain fell
this week across a good portion of the state, bringing much needed 
relief to some dry areas.  The temps have cooled and the high winds
have calmed making for good growing conditions now for regrowth of
cut fields.  All hay and straw sold by the ton FOB, unless otherwise
noted.

California Hay Report

Compared to last week:  Trade activity moderate on moderate demand.  
According to the NASS Crop Progress report June 15, 2020, in Tulare 
County, harvesting of winter grain plants such as wheat, oats and barley 
was completed.  However, some winter grain fields remained for dried 
grain harvest.  Some winter grains, especially oats were being cut, dried 
and baled for hay.  Cotton fields were being cultivated and irrigated.  
Fields were being fertilized and tilled for corn and sorghum planting as 
well as cultivated for weeds.  Alfalfa continued to be irrigated, cut, 
dried and baled.  In Fresno County, herbicide applications were on-going 
in barley and oat fields as needed.  Cotton emerged due to warmer 
weather.  Wheat for fodder, sorghum, triticale, and winter wheat forage 
was being harvested for dairy feed and cover crop.  Harvested fields were 
disked and cultivated for re-planting of more forage crops.  Rice fields 
were growing well. A few mustard fields were mowed, and safflower fields 
were drying down in anticipation for harvest.  The rice crop was 
progressing at a normal pace in the Sacramento Valley.  Hay is reported 
FOB the stack or barn unless otherwise noted. Regions are defined at 
bottom of report.
