Hay harvested area expected to decline

SHARE NOW

The USDA is projecting lower hay harvested area in 2024.

That’s due to a decline in planted area caused by the ongoing drier than normal conditions in several states.

The harvested area estimate for all types of hay is 51.562 million acres, 2% less than 2023, but still considerably more than 2022.

Hay supply and demand, and hay prices, are highly regional and can vary widely even within those regions.
