Kansas Hay Market Report
Ground alfalfa movement:  Southwest/South Central  
Tonnage:  7,901/5,206      Last week: 8,515/5,129      Last year: 7,257/2,756
 
Hay trade and movement slow to moderate. Demand moderate to good for dairy, 
grinding 
and stock cow alfalfa, light to moderate for grass hay and alfalfa pellets. 
Very 
spotty rain fell over the State last weekend, amounts from a trace to small 
areas had 
up to 3 inches. Warm temperatures are helping hatch the alfalfa weevil and 
spread the 
aphids. Spraying and chemigating are active and moving Northward. In a few 
areas 
spraying was done to control armyworms. Damage from the freeze last week was 
minimal, 
only a few fields had severe damage. New crop alfalfa trade is slow developing, 
producers are waiting till the first cutting is baled to price their hay. 
Cutting 
could start the second week of May in the Southern counties. If you have hay 
for sale 
or pasture to rent or need hay or grazing, use the services of the Hay and 
Pasture 
Exchange: ww.kfb.org/commodities/haypasture/index.html
