USDA sees higher hay harvest


The USDA says the hay harvest should be up in 2023.

However, the quality of that hay is a big question mark because of drought in parts of the country, and it is likely farmer harvest intentions will change to some degree.

As of June 1st, the total hay harvest is projected at 51.976 million acres, including 15.658 million acres of alfalfa and alfalfa mixtures and 36.318 million acres of other types of hay, all up 5% from 2022.
