Missouri Weekly Hay Summary Week ending 04/18/2014

   Rain, sun, repeat is the current weather pattern, with rapid 
temperature swings from unseasonably hot to unseasonably cold 
thrown in for good measure.  Field work is lagging behind the 
average with weather delays, but producers seem optimistic about
the growing season ahead.  Hay demand is light, supply is moderate
to heavy, and prices are steady.  The Missouri Department of Agriculture 
has a hay directory available for both buyers and sellers. To be 
listed, or for a directory visit http://mda.mo.gov/abd/haydirectory/
