Compared to last week alfalfa sold steady on a thin test. Ground and delivered forages and dehy pellets sold steady. Demand was moderate to good. Most of the state has received rain showers this week with some areas in the northeastern part of the state getting 14-17 inches of rain over the weekend. A lot of crop and flood damage has occurred since Monday in this area of Nebraska. Some cattlemen have been cutting pastures and baling grass hay where yearling cattle have not been keeping up with the large amounts of grass. Some producers are starting on 2nd cutting with some still waiting to finish up on first. 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.
