Hay Report

MOSES LAKE (Dec. 7) — Tonnage this week: 11,350; last week: 28,600; last year: 3,100.

Compared to the week ending Nov. 30, all grades of alfalfa for export and domestic steady. Trade active with good demand as more interest was shown by exporters and feeder hay buyers. Exporters are buying fully wrapped hay. Feeder hay is scarce. Larger alfalfa farms in Saudi Arabia will not be able to use water for irrigation starting in mid-December, according to sources, which has spurred more demand for West Coast alfalfa hay. Retail/feed store firm in a light test.
