California Hay Report

  Compared to last week:  Trade activity moderate on moderate demand.  
According to the NASS Crop Progress report May 26, 2020, in Tulare 
County, winter row crops were rapidly being chopped and harvested.  
Almost all fields have  been harvested and were being fertilized and 
tilled.  In other areas, winter small grains including wheat were being 
harvested for silage as well as cut, dried, and baled.  Many farmers were 
beginning pre-irrigation to ready the fields for summer crops.  Fields 
were being fertilized, cultivated for weeds, and tilled for corn and 
sorghum planting.  Fields were also being planted with corn and cotton.  
Alfalfa continued to be cut, dried, and baled with some delay due to the 
recent rains.  Rice crops were looking above normal condition in the 
Sacramento Valley.  Hay is reported FOB the stack or barn unless 
otherwise noted. Regions are defined at bottom of report.
