Hay supplies are good, but quality varies

Overall, hay supplies should not be an issue this winter—but according to University of Nebraska forage specialist Bruce Anderson, supplies of high-quality hay could be fairly tight. As for hay prices, Anderson thinks they will hold fairly steady.  Longer-term, though, Anderson is concerned about the impact that higher grain prices will have on alfalfa production.   He says the last run-up in grain prices led to a significant decrease in alfalfa acres.
