Compared to last week large square bales of dairy alfalfa sold steady to 5.00 higher, round bales of alfalfa and grass hay sold mostly steady. Ground and delivered hay sold 5.00 higher and dehy pellets sold steady.  Demand was good for dairy alfalfa and light to moderate for all other baled hay. Some producers are finishing up on fourth and fifth cutting hay. Big topic on this week’s calls was about the bushels of corn that fell off due to the excessive winds the last week. Several reports ranging from 30-100 bu/acre, most reporting 50-70 bu/acre.  Producers are trying to figure out there next move on how they will clean the corn out of the fields.  Bale it or graze it or windrow it and try to run it through the combine. Sure all ways will be tried to capture some loss that has occurred.  All sales are dollars per ton FOB the field or hay barn, unless otherwise noted.
