Missouri Weekly Hay Summary Week ending 08/01/2014

   Cooler temperatures returned to the state and July is officially going 
to go into the record books as one of the top ten coolest on record. 
Despite the unseasonably cool month many producers are expressing that 
lack of moisture is quickly becoming a serious concern. The university 
also warned producers to be on the lookout for striped blister beetles 
as they have been showing up in high numbers in some alfalfa fields. Hay 
movement continues to be very limited. Hay supply is moderate, demand is 
light, and prices are steady. The Missouri Department of Agriculture has 
a hay directory available for both buyers and sellers. To be listed, or
