Same here, if we do not get a break, price will go up, quality down. There are a bunch of nice stands of hay near me, were just about right, but impossible to bale until this rain lets up.

You lose nutrition, coarse and stalky, though, timothy is usually heads out later, that helps, but the darned rain needs to cease. Some around here were able to get a crop in, early or on time, at the end of May, but it was so dry, what would usually be an ideal cutting, was stunted, so there was not enough in the fields. I think it varied, hill fields not as moist, some hay producers, posted photos of their crop then, while listing for sale, some nice hay, but no one has made any since, rain and 90% humidity has been a constant for the month of June.

THe weather here has been the same way. It rains every other day. We did manage to get 5o acres done but it was a struggle. It was down for a week, and ended up being round bales. They're calling for rain all this week as well. We normally do around 25000 bales, small squares, that we sell out of state, haven't baled any. Last year we were done with first cut by now. I hope it turns around soon. On a positive note I've had lots of time to work on the equipment and finally got a mow conveyor up in the barn. I'm in NNY by the way.
