reported volume.  Demand remains moderate from in state customers, moderate
to good from out of state buyers where supplies of hay are much more
limited.  Cool, wet conditions this week across much of the state.
Good snowpack levels in the mountain ranges across the state making the outlook
for the coming irrigation season looking very positive.  All prices are dollars
per ton and FOB unless otherwise noted.
