Compared to last week all reported forages sold steady. Demand was moderate to good. With the cold weather grass and alfalfa is slow to grow this spring and there has been some winter kill in area alfalfa fields. Some producers continue to bale cornstalks and many reports the bales are in pretty good shape. County road conditions still are poor across most of the state with some areas applying weight restrictions. These restrictions have made it difficult to get forage products to the farmer/rancher in remote areas. All sales are dollars per ton FOB the field or hay barn, unless otherwise noted.
