****DUE TO LAST WEEK’S VETERANS DAY HOLIDAY, THE FOLLOWING IS A REPRINT OF THE NOVEMBER 10TH REPORT. NEXT PUBLISHED REPORT WILL BE TUESDAY NOVEMBER 24TH, 2020.****
Hay market prices were steady while demand and amount of hay traded backed off a bit. Most contributors stated that although sales and inquiries slowed, there is hay around, with good quality hay becoming harder to find and folks are holding on to it. For those moving hay, it sounds like many trades have been out of state with loads moving to Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado and back east. According to US Drought Monitor for the week of November 3rd, Kansas missed out on precipitation during late October, thus some degradations were made there. Moderate drought (D1) was extended across northern Kansas and into southeastern Nebraska.
