Missouri Weekly Hay Summary Week ending 06/13/2014
Following a long string of days with rain, or a high percentage chance
of rain, and high humidity haying is delayed in all regions of the state.
Many producers have not yet made their first cutting and those that have,
were able to cut a couple weeks ago and progress since then has been mostly
a no-go. The supply is moderate, demand is good, and prices are steady.

both buyers and sellers. To be listed, or for a directory visit
