Hay Trade Slow to Steady

Compared to the last report: Hay trade is slow to steady. After a cou-ple of weeks of no moisture, hay producers could start baling and selling the hay. Oklahoma still has a lot of 2023 hay, which is being sold and still stacked in barns. Even with all of the rain we have had, we have started to see drought creeping back across the state due to high temperatures and high winds.
