Poorer quality hay brought to market as prices rise

Poorer quality hay carried over from last season has made its way to hay sales as prices strengthen on the back of poor weather.

Vendors who stored hay from last season when prices were low have benefited from the shortage this year at Tayler and Fletcher’s hay straw and fodder sale in Gloucestershire.

 

Adrian Cannon, partner at Tayler and Fletcher, said straw markets had ‘remained firm with admirable prices’.

 

Strengthening

 

“The hay market saw strengthening prices and clearly there is an intensifying market with the recent wet weather as fodder requirements from livestock increase and the availability reduces,” he said.

 

The strength of the November sale had encouraged vendors to release poorer quality hay.

 

Mr Cannon added: “This is a year which is going to clear all stocks from the barn.”
