Hay trade slow

In Oklahoma, hay trading is slow. Demand and movement is light to moderate for alfalfa, very light for grass hay. Very little dairy hay moving and this week’s sales mostly at bottom of price ranges. Grass hay sales hard to find. Wheat planting, wrap up haying activities and other fall harvest activities in full swing. Producers are very busy right now and marketing on the back burner for many. Wheat pasture outlook on track to be good later this year, according to the USDA Market News Service, Oct. 11. Prices given on per-ton basis, unless otherwise noted.

Central—Premium quality alfalfa, loaded on truck at edge of field $200-$225; good/premium at edge of field, $160-$180; fair/good quality alfalfa including grassy alfalfa $140-$165/ton, mostly $150. Some grassy alfalfa in round bales reported, $90-$125 late. Bermuda grass 4 x 5 bales, $30-$45/bale; 5 x 6 bales, $45-$60/bale, mostly $50. Prairie hay, $25-$45/bale 4 x 5 bales, mostly $30-$40. Good small square bales mixed grass, $3-$5/bale in the field.

Eastern—Fair/good alfalfa, $140-$170. Supreme quality horse hay, $350-$400/ton in small square bales. Good mixed grass hay 4 x 5 bales, $25-$45/bale; 5 x 6 bales, $40-$50/bale; small square bales mixed grass, $3-$6/bale.

Western—Premium alfalfa, edge of field $200-$225; fair/good, $140-$165, mostly $150. Good wheat hay, $40-$45 per 4 x 5 bale. Good quality oat hay two loads, $90/ton. Good straw hay, $60/ton.
