So there's gonna be lots of tonnage of slightly lower quality hay? Beef guys can use that just fine, correct?
Only one guy that I know of putting out a detailed forecast that far out. Take it with a handful of salt, but a year ago he was calling for the spring of 19 to be cold and wet until the end of May, saying it would be winter weather into late April.
"The Winter of 2019-2020 for the northern hemisphere will begin on November 25, 2019 and will end on February 8-9, 2020.
It will be colder and snowier than normal in December 2019, with several early snowstorms firing up in October & November 2019 for the Plains, Rocky Mountains and Upper Midwest, with early December snowfall in the Ohio Valley & Mid-Atlantic before Christmas 2019.
It's going to be a white Christmas 2019 for many tens of millions of people this year. Remember, you heard it here first.
Early January 2020 will see strong mid-winter conditions well underway across two-thirds of the nation, especially the Upper Midwest, Plains, Rocky Mountains, the Ohio Valley, Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern U.S., with colder than normal temperatures and plenty of snowfall.
However, Winter of 2019-2020 will race by fast and will end with a large snowstorm on the I-95 corridor by Feb. 7-9, 2020 - after that, it will melt quickly and winter will be suddenly over.
The second half of February 2020 is warmer-and-drier than normal. Again, it is a cold and snowy season, but Winter 2019-2020 begins and ends early and gives way to an early and warmer-than-average very early spring 2020."
