Missouri Weekly Hay Summary Week ending 08/22/2014

Most all the state received some rain in the last week with the heaviest rains 
being recorded in the northern 1/3 of the state, several areas reporting 4-5 
inches of total rainfall. Summer heat has arrived in full force so the moisture 
was quite welcomed. The hay market continues to feel pressure from promises of 
an overabundance of corn and pastures which have remained in good condition all 
year. 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 listed, or for a directory visit
