Hay prices go up and down depending on the old law of supply and demand.
Supply: Despite the predictions of the experts, hay production was good in California last year and a lot of stored hay was carried over into this season. Now as we are well into the new season with prospects for another good production crop year, there is an abundance hay available and prices are trending lower.
Demand: Hay is grown in California to supply dairies, beef cattle, horses and the export market. Dairy cow numbers are down and beef cattle have lots of grass so the demand from the local livestock sector is low. In addition the export market has also been at a standstill this season.
Results: Combine this good crop and grass year with lower demand and you get lower prices for hay and consequently the possibility of this lower market continuing into the summer.
Get out your crystal ball. The price of milk and the demand from the exporters will tell the tale.
