Weekly Hay Auction Report

Iowa Hay Summary    Week Ending  July 20

The quality of second cutting hay continued to exceed the quality of first cutting hay as both first and second cuttings of hay were available across Iowa. Northeast Iowa went nearly the entire week with no rain, which may have been a first for this year.

Although hay cuttings lag behind recent years, yield per acre on hay ground is running ahead of schedule due to consistent rains across the state.
