OKLAHOMA HAY MARKET REPORT
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK Thu Jan 10, 2019 Oklahoma Dept. of Ag Market News

Alfalfa trade was very slow this week. Movement was light to moderate. Dairy 
demand was light while demand from feedlots and other beef producers was 
moderate. Alfalfa movement into the state from out of state sources was 
moderate. Grass hay demand was fairly good for good quality Bermuda, wheat 
hay and native grass hay. Limited supplies and offerings of this type hay 
were noted. Recent rains and snow have left much of the state saturated and 
have ended any drought designations.   

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 www.oda.state.ok.us. Producers wishing to list hay are encouraged to call
at 1-405-522-3753 or email jack.carson@ag.ok.gov.
