Missouri—In the Feb. 11 report, hay movement was pretty much halted this week due to poor travel conditions. The supply of hay is moderate, demand is moderate and prices are mostly steady. Winter spread across the Midwest this week. Nearly all of the state has snow cover and some freezing rain caused some slipping while trying to get from pasture to pasture to feed this week. Some dangerously cold weather this weekend to make getting feeding trucks and tractors even more difficult to start. If there is a plus side mud is no longer an issue.

Areas in the southwest being most impacted with a couple of counties mostly in D2 status.

Oklahoma—In the Aug. 6 report, compared to two weeks ago, all classes of hay trade has been extremely slow due to recent heavy rains and cooler temperatures having producers hoping for a second cutting of bermuda grass. Alfalfa trade also has been slow and getting cheaper as many dairies are looking for alternative feed stuffs. Stock cow producers are hoping the cooler and wetter weather will extend grazing into the fall leaving less need to start stock piling hay. Demand mostly light to moderate. Please note that from this forward this report will be released bi-weekly until hay trade starts to be more active. Next report will be released on Aug. 20.
