Montana Hay Update

Billings, MT    Fri Feb 10, 2017    USDA Market News

Weekly Montana Hay Report

Compared to last week: Alfalfa hay sold fully steady this week on all classes of hay. Demand continues to be mostly good on light to moderate supplies. Another week another snow storm, this seems to be the story week in and week out as cattlemen across the state continue to burn through hay supplies.Hay supplies have begun to tighten in many locations across the state. Drought revenged areas in the eastern half of the state show strong demand for hay as they put up limited supplies this summer. Large shipments of hay continue to be delivered to this region as a result. Ranches across the state are searching for round bales as round supplies have tightened. In many classes round bales are selling at the same money or a premium to squares. Prices for straw remains steady on very good demand. All prices are dollars per ton and FOB unless otherwise noted.
