Compared to last week, alfalfa sold fully steady. Grass hay sold steady. Ground and delivered hay in the Platte Valley and Eastern areas of the state sold with western Nebraska trading steady to 15.00 higher. Dehy pellets sold steady on a thin test. All contacts reported demand is very good. Quite a lot of hay going to out of state feedlots and dairies. Some ranchers are loading up on hay, especially alfalfa hay to supplement cows and heifers after calving. Some cattlemen are having to supplement cows on cornstalks as most are under snow and cows are having a hard time rummaging up a enough calories. Warm weather in most areas of the state on Thursday with a cool down for Friday and Saturday and seasonally February temps starting on Sunday.  All sales are dollars per ton FOB the field or hay barn, unless otherwise noted.
