High-quality hay prices are high but inventories depleted.
Prices for high-quality hay are remaining high and mostly steady, but sales activity has slowed because inventories are depleted. Demand for lower-quality hay has softened in some areas due to the mild winter.
These prices were gathered by USDA in late January. Figures followed by (D) are delivered prices. All others are at the farm. Cube and pellet prices are for bulk sales.
