Compared to last week alfalfa, grass hay, dehy pellets sold steady. Ground and delivered hay sold steady to 5.00 higher. Most producers continue to struggle with getting decent to top quality hay produced this year as there has been very few really good haying days this summer. Many producers continue to be fairly upbeat and keep plugging away with making hay. Corn silage is underway across most of the state and so far tonnage has been quite good in most areas that did not get any hail. Most pasture grasses look good for this time of year with a lot of grass headed out and many cows are still belly deep in feed. All sales are dollars per ton FOB the field or hay barn, unless otherwise noted.
