Missouri Weekly Hay Summary Week ending 08/29/2014

High temperatures was the headline for this week. Despite the near triple 
degree weather grass in most areas continues to be a nice shade of green 
and is still growing in most areas as moisture has been adequate to promote 
growth. Some producers are baling fall hay already adding to hay supplies. 
Several producers also got the choppers out this week and begin to fill 
silage piles. Hay movement continues to be very light. Some producers are 
still trying to move some of last year’s hay crop even. Supply is moderate, 
demand is light, and prices are steady to weak. The Missouri Department of 
Agriculture has a hay directory available for both buyers and sellers. To be
