USDA - AMS: Oklahoma Hay Report (2019-01-03)

USDA U.S. Department of Agriculture - January 3, 2019

KO GR310
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK Thu Jan 03, 2018 Oklahoma Dept. of Ag Market News

Alfalfa trade remained at a near standstill this week with holidays and 
weather limiting movement. Most hay movement consisted of previous trades and 
contracts.  In-state offerings are mostly light to moderate and most buyers 
are looking out-of-state for supplies. Demand was mostly moderate for all 
alfalfa this week. Prices were fully steady in the limited test. Grass hay 
movement also limited this week with demand moderate and supplies of better 
quality grass hay light.  

Market News continues to maintain an online hay directory for both in-state
and out-of-state hay producers.  The directories are on the ODAFF homepage
at Producers wishing to list hay are encouraged to call
