03-16-21 Hay Market Report

Hay market prices were mostly steady for all hay types; demand remains strong for alfalfa as supplies remain extremely limited in the southwest. However, thoughts are turning to the new hay season, with several contributors reporting new crop hay sales in the southwest region. Folks kept busy last week with field work, applying fertilizer, and putting down anhydrous ahead of the rain. Most all areas of Kansas received rain with a highest, single day total of 4.38 inches near Damar on the 14th. The rain was a welcome relief as, according to the US Drought Monitor for the week of March 11th, abnormally dry and moderate drought conditions had pushed to the east in response to the
most recent dryness in the region and above-normal temperatures. Abnormal dryness (D0) increased to 27%, moderate drought (D1) increased to 23%, severe drought (D2) remained at 6.5%, and extreme drought (D3) remained at 10%.
