03-30-2021 Hay Market Report

Hay market prices were mostly steady to 10.00 higher for alfalfa in the southwest and south-central regions. Alfalfa in the southwest is very difficult to find, and although you can still find loads here and there in the central region, barns are emptying out. Demand was light to moderate and deliveries slowed the past week due to the mud. According to the US Drought Monitor for the week of March 25th, Frequent precipitation during the past two weeks continues to result in additional improvements to parts of the central Plains and central Rockies. 7-day total amounts (March 16-22) ranged from 1 to 3 inches, locally more, across a broad region including south-central Nebraska and much of Kansas. Abnormal dryness (D0) decreased to 11.5 %, moderate drought (D1) increased to 10%, severe drought (D2) decreased to 2%, and extreme drought (D3) was eliminated. If you have any extra hay to sell and/or need hay here in Kansas, use the services of the Internet Hay Exchange:www.hayexchange.com/ks.php.
