For what it is worth 

Quality hay has not been offered in quite some time, What we are seeing is mostly rained on damaged and wet hay, Hay prices have been slipping because of the volume of wet hay that sells at a discount buyers can only feed so much. the average weight of 3×3 bales is 112 lbs heavier than a year ago and 5×6 round bales are 209 lbs heavier than a year ago meaning more hay  has water and sells for less.

Trend change we are hearing a record amount of corn is going to be chopped so farmers can buy less hay and there is no shortage of poor quality / yellow corn to chop, Also milk prices have been on the rise and it’s been awhile since they have been to the $19 range with some dairymen thinking mid $20’s maybe possible, High priced milk means less cows are being milked which reduces demand for top end higher dollar hay, the only problem is there is no high dollar  top end hay to be able to drive those prices down.

update a road trip thru Northern Missouri  this week showed many fields not planted and the corn that was still has a long ways to go. Beans are grass green with lots of pods all of which contain no beans yet.
