EAST TEXAS (KLTV/KTRE) - Here’s a look at the USDA weekly hay report for the state of Texas.

Meantime in the north, central, and panhandle, we’re told that a cooler than average spring brought on a late start to many hay producers. Right now, it’s unclear what winter hay stands will look like. But this is causing demand to go up.
