Oklahoma Hay

Oklahoma City, OK – May 19

(F-S) Hay trade slow and demand mostly light to moderate. Dairy and feedlot demand remain extremely light. Most movement this week occurred in central Oklahoma and the bulk of alfalfa sold went to beef producers and a few horse ranches. Producers are still putting up a fairly large amount of wheat hay but confirmed sales were hard to find. Alfalfa baling is running well ahead of last year’s pace but well behind the five-year average. More rains and thunderstorms moved across the state this week disrupting fieldwork over much of the state.

Texas Hay

Amarillo, TX — May 20

(F-S) All hay classes traded steady on very slow movement. There are lots of variety of hay on the market this time of year particularly wheat hay. New crop prices of wheat hay are a lot lower than previous prices due to the abundance available and Alfalfa prices to compete with as well. Weather in the Panhandle was cooler but with much needed showers around that benefitting local pastures. Coastal Bermuda producers in North and East Texas were dodging rain to get into the fields to cut which may keep prices firm on top quality hay. South Texas Coastal Bermuda producers report plenty of large bales will be available as they have been in able to get in their fields to bale. Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted.
