Compared to last week: All classes of hay sold steady on a very thin test. Buyer demand very good for all classes on very light hay supplies. New crop hay is growing very slowly around the state as cool weather and rainstorms hold back farmers from cutting. Hopefully some hay will be baled within the next couple weeks in the Eastern area depending on the weather.

Compared to last week: All classes of hay sold mostly steady. Buyer demand good for all dairy and export classes and moderate on retail types as some buyers are meeting resistance from feed stores and horse owners. Northern California received more rain showers and cool temperatures this past week with more forecasted through the weekend. This has resulted in delayed second cutting throughout the area and an increased amount of rain damaged hay on the market.


First cutting in the Intermountain area is delayed due to wet and cool weather. Central California: Most areas have finished up second cutting. Some producers have delayed starting third cutting due to rain showers have been forecasted for the weekend through the beginning of next week. Southern California: Inquiries and interest is good and seems to be up from recent weeks. A very light volume of Sudan hay has been harvested however no confirmed sales yet this week. Farmers in the Antelope Valley area reporting very cool temperatures for this time of year taking its toll on hay tonnage. All prices are reported FOB the stack or barn unless otherwise noted.

CENTRAL CALIFORNIA


Compared to last week: All classes of hay traded mostly steady. Demand moderate to good for all classes on moderate supplies. Most of the central part of the state was back into production this week after the rains slowed everything down last week. Producers that did not cut to avoid the rain have very mature stands at this point. Between mature hay and rain damaged hay the dairy quality supply remains fairly tight. This is keeping prices firm and forcing dairies to look at alternative forages for their rations. All prices reported FOB the stack or barn unless otherwise noted.
