    Compared to last Friday, domestic New crop Premium Alfalfa steady in 
a light test. A lack of higher testing new crop Alfalfa has increased demand. An 
abundance of feeder quality rained on supplies have put pressure on the market 
for that commodity. Trade remains slow as rain showers over the trade area have 
slowed marketing. Retail/Feed store not tested this week. Prices are dollars per 
ton and FOB the farm or ranch unless otherwise stated.

California Hay Report

June 19

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.
