Weekly #22 West Coast Hay and Straw


Good domestic and export demand due to light supplying of high test Alfalfa Hay in California. Price @220-230 for retail, @215-220 for export, @200-205 for nice #1 grade. Klein Hay @190 for premium @180 for standard, Bermuda Hay @200.00 for premium. Expect high temperature next week.


1st cut Alfalfa is selling to domestic dairy with wide range price from 195 to 225. Exporters still waiting unless they have firm demand from overseas. Expect more Timothy Hay production. Some farmers will start to harvest 1st Timothy Hay earlier due to 1st cut Alfalfa Hay on ground.
