California Hay Report

  Compared to last week:  Trade activity moderate on moderate demand.  
According 
to the NASS Crop Progress report November 12, 2019, in Tulare County, fields 
were being tilled and pre-irrigated for winter forage and grain crops. Some 
fields were being laser leveled for better irrigation. Alfalfa continued to be 
cut and baled. Cotton harvest was in full swing. Early fall-planted small 
grains 
continued to be planted and were emerging well in the valley. Safflower, corn, 
and late sorghum harvesting was ongoing. Winter wheat planting has slowed due 
to 
dry weather conditions. In Sutter County, corn harvest was progressing well.  
Hay is reported FOB the stack or barn unless otherwise noted.  Regions are 
defined at bottom of report.
