USDA - AMS: Oklahoma Grain Report (2019-05-02)

USDA U.S. Department of Agriculture - May 2, 2019

KO GR310
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK Thu May 2, 2019 Oklahoma Dept. of Ag Market News

Alfalfa trade at a standstill as rain and spring storms are holding up first
cutting. Demand for first cutting appears good but prices remain untested. A
small amount of alfalfa has been cut and most of this received rain damage. 
Widespread rains and flooding are also curtailing wheat hay baling. Demand for
wheat hay is very good.
