Hay market prices were steady for alfalfa and mostly steady for grass hay. Demand is good for alfalfa on limited supply. Folks are waiting to get in the hay field, but rainy and cool weather continued across the state and has kept them from getting new crop baled up. Producers state that many alfalfa fields are starting to bloom and looks heavy and very mature. Lots of inquiries for new crop hay have been reported from both in state and out of state buyers, as everyone seems to be short on inventory. According to the US Drought Monitor for the week of May 25th, a swath of 1.5 to 3 inches (locally more) of rain fell from western North Dakota southward to eastern Colorado and northwestern Kansas, resulting in reductions in D0 (abnormally dry) and D1 (moderate drought) for those regions. For Kansas abnormal dryness (D0) decreased to 26%, and no moderate drought (D1) or severe drought (D2) was reported.
