HERE IS YOUR KANSAS HAY MARKET REPORT FOR THE WEEK ENDING JULY 9th

Compared to the last report, prices firmed up in almost all regions, and seem to be all over the map. As one producer put it, the price of hay is whatever it takes to make the deal. While demand is good, hay movement is slow to moderate as many have been busy in the fields. In addition, many are looking to hold onto their hay for a bit in anticipation of higher markets later. The western half of Kansas continues to spiral into worsening drought conditions with no good news for those wanting to purchase hay. Prices continue to rise as supplies are limited. Parts of the central and northeast region received some rain and are optimistic for a good prairie hay season. Extreme southeast Kansas continues to see some abnormally dry conditions. According to the U.S. Drought Monitor for July 5th, abnormally dry conditions (D0) remained at just over 12%, moderate drought (D1) decreased to near 14%, severe drought (D2) increased to 14%, extreme drought (D3) remained near 15%, and exceptional drought (D4) remained at 1%.
