This budget presents information useful to farmers planning the production, financing, grazing and marketing of fescue-clover hay. Table 1 presents estimates for the 2020 crop year for established fescue-clover hay in northern, central and southwest Missouri. Assumptions were based on price conditions as of October 2019. Detailed prices and practices are summarized in Tables 2 and 3. The production practices used to develop these cost estimates are common in Missouri. Farmers are encouraged to modify this budget based on their circumstances.
