California Hay Report

  Compared to last week: All classes traded steady with very good demand.    
According to the NASS Crop Progress Report 5/13/18, the passage of a weak 
frontal system brought showers over northern California on Tuesday. A weak high 
pressure system moved through the Pacific Northwest, which brought about dry 
and 
warm weather for the remainder of the week.  Temperature highs for the week 
ranged in the 60s to 80s along the coast, 70s to 80s in the mountains, 80s to 
90s in the valley, and 90s to 100s in the desert. Temperature lows for the week 
ranged 30s to 40s in the mountains, 40s to 50s along the coast, 40s to 60s in 
the valley, and 40s to 60s in the desert region.  Rice was being planted in 
Sacramento County, though strong winds slowed planting. Sunflowers for oil were 
progressing well in Imperial County. Alfalfa fields continued to mature and 
were 
harvested. Wheat and oats for hay, were cut, dried, and baled.  Hay is reported 
FOB the stack or barn unless otherwise noted.  Regions are defined at bottom of 
report.
