Record demand for hay causing all varieties to double in price

This year’s drought is producing record demand for hay, as the market gets tighter.

A Kansas livestock producer says that prices for all varieties of hay have almost doubled. He tells Brownfield Ag News demand is so high that while some hay is leaving the state, most of it is being held back by producers to make sure they have enough for their herds or it is being kept within the state at feed yards.
