Central CA had a rain this week after one of driest 1st quarter season. So, more demand to Imperial County from Dairy Farmers in Central and Northern CA. Price was around 215 to 220 for exportable Premium Alfalfa and 210-215 for Premium Bermuda Hay.
Exporters started to sell Old Alfalfa to domestic dairy because of slow demand from overseas and CA new crop Alfalfa is being sold 20 or 30 lower than old. All hay acreage around 840,000 Acre in Washington State, up 60,000 from 2012. Fescue Straw sold @ 110.00 which was 70-80 lower than season highest.
