Compared to last week alfalfa sold unevenly steady. Ground and delivered forages and dehy pellets sold steady to 5.00 higher. Not enough grass hay sold for a market test. Demand was moderate. Most of the state has received rain showers and is preventing hay from being put up. Some producers have started second cutting of alfalfa. Most of the reports on the 2nd cutting is really good tonnage. Appears there will be a large amount of cane, millet or sudan grass planted this summer as many are reporting its very hard to find seed. All sales are dollars per ton FOB the field or hay barn, unless otherwise noted.
