This could be the last week for hay as producers in some areas are hustling to get the crop put up before the weather gets worse with snow expected this coming week.
The buyers are testing hay and bidding but producers are in a ‘wait and see' mode. Reports show that corn silage yields are very good this year giving the dairies the opportunity to take a wait and see the position on feed. The export market is also steady with no need to be aggressive with their bids. Premium alfalfa in southern Idaho is being bid at $240 and higher grades bid at $230. The other regions of the state showing markets at $10 higher to $10 lower.
That's it for the Monday market report…You can check out the market prices on the Idaho Farm Bureau web page… for the voice of Idaho Agriculture, I'm Jake Putnam
