East Texas Ag News: Winter weather boosts winter hay crops

East Texas Ag News

EAST TEXAS (KLTV/KTRE) - The USDA weekly Texas hay report says trades were mostly steady to firm.

The winter weather across the panhandle last week gave winter wheat crops a much-needed boost.

Meanwhile, South and West Texas remain very dry. As a result, grazing is very scarce in both regions and supplemental feeding is in full swing.

Producers here in east texas and in northern parts are having a hard time loading out hay due to excess moisture and mud, slowing the hay trade down.
