Texas Hay

Amarillo, TX — June 26

(F-S) Hay trades are mostly steady to firm in all regions. According to the US Drought Monitor, drought conditions have improved in the Southern and Central regions of the state. However, above-normal temperatures, high wind events, and below-normal precipitation leading up to this week has led to high evapotranspiration rates and hardened soils, increasing runoff. This has expanded the drought area in the Panhandle and West Texas. The Texas A&M Forest Service is concerned arid weather will create conditions for a severe late-summer wildfire season. Poor pasture conditions in the Panhandle and the West has many producers culling deeper into their herds as supplemental feeding has become the new norm. Areas in the North received up to 5 inches of rain with these recent storms, but rainfall amounts varied significantly across the area.
