Texas Hay

Amarillo, TX — August 15

(F-S) Hay prices were mostly steady. Trade activity was slow on light to moderate demand. Dairies and feedlots have really put the brakes on buying hay at top prices this week. Many dairies are using cheaper feed rations such as corn silage to keep costs down. Freight continues to be a key factor in prices as it depends on how far the hay is being hauled. South and East Texas Coastal Bermuda producers are still asking same prices on their hay and hoping for movement to pick up as buyers begin to stock up for winter months. Recent rains have local pastures in good condition and there is no need for supplemental feeding of livestock at this time. Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted.
