HERE IS YOUR KANSAS HAY MARKET REPORT FOR THE WEEK ENDING JUNE 26th . . . . .

Kim Nettleton

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!!
Hay market prices were steady across the board. Demand remains good for alfalfa, and folks are relieved that lots of hay is getting baled up, although most is going to the grinder hay market. Most producers report they have finished first cutting with good yield but have concerns for second cutting. The past week has seen relief from the blistering 100 plus degree temperatures we had two weeks ago, which expanded the abnormally dry conditions in Kansas. The cooler temps and the receipt of some much-needed precipitation will certainly help the prairie grass. According to the US Drought Monitor for the week of June 22nd, abnormal dryness (D0) increased to near 20%, and no moderate drought (D1) or severe drought (D2) was reported. The National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) reports that Pasture and range conditions rated 1% very poor, 7% poor, 31% fair, 54% good, and 7% excellent.
