Southwest Missouri hay market to continue as demand remains strong

Southwest Missouri hay market to continue as demand remains strong

Cattle producers have been able to feed less hay with the milder temperatures this winter.

But, Missouri Department of Agriculture’s market news manager Tony Hancock says demand remains strong – and the latest Southwest Missouri Hay Auction held in Golden City is a perfect example.  “There were still over 2000 bales of hay and over 100 buyers there,” he says.  “It was rocking and rolling.  The prices were a touch cheaper, but not significantly like we normally expect once grass gets here.”

He says that auction has been incredibly popular.
