OKLAHOMA HAY MARKET REPORT
Movement mostly light this week with most sales moving locally. Demand light to
moderate for all offerings. Supplemental feeding continues to increase in most
areas but producers seem to have immediate needs secured. Only light rainfall
received in portions of western and northern Oklahoma this week with other parts
of the state receiving trace amounts. Moderate temperatures returned this week
benefitting wheat and winter grasses.
Market News continues to maintain an online hay directory for both in-state
and out-of-state hay producers. The directories are on the ODAFF homepage at
