Compared to last week alfalfa, grass hay, ground and delivered products and dehy pellets sold steady. More buyers are looking for a cheaper source of roughage to blend into winter rations. Nice seasonally warm temperatures around the state this week allowing farmers to make huge head way in wrapping up harvest. Cattlemen been busy filling cornfields with cows for winter grazing and some have started to ask about the cost of available baled hay. Many are hoping the warm and open weather will continue so limited feed will need to be bought. A lot of cornstalks and soybean stubble along with cane and millet hay getting baled. All sales are dollars per ton FOB the field or hay barn, unless otherwise noted.
