Hay Situation and Price Update for August
Most areas of the province are reporting the completion of 2nd and/or 3rd cut alfalfa with some areas waiting to take the final cut and others reporting that straw is in short supply. This past month, MFGA carried out a short survey across the province (see survey link below) asking about the forage situation on your farm. We also surveyed the MAFRD forage staff and various forage industry personnel to get their impression of hay prices and the hay situation as of mid-August. Read the full report here.
