Iowa’s Last Week Hay Summary

a-hay-roll-5456x3632_32805As winter approaches, producers are seeing an increased demand for high quality, dairy type hay. The limited supply continues to bring a slight premium.

There is an increased demand for large round bales, and a decrease in demand for large squares compared to last year.

However, some producers have seen a slight decrease this week, with thoughts that it is due to the recent rainy weather.

The supply of hay has been adequate to cover needs with higher quality hay a little harder to find.
