Weekly Montana Hay Report

   Compared to last week:  Alfalfa hay remains steady.  Moderate demand 
currently, with best demand for hay for export, quality must be high though
and that remains hard to find as so much of the states first cutting was
delayed and subsequently too mature.  Good interest from buyers from Idaho
and Washington looking for clean, green, no test alfalfa.  Little interest
from California buyers presently as their immediate needs have been met
with local production.  Timothy haying in the southern part of the state is
in full swing.  All prices are dollars per ton and FOB unless otherwise noted.
  
   Alfalfa:  Good to Premium:  Large Squares, 175.00; Small Squares 200.00.
Good:  Large Squares, 170.00.  Utility to Fair:  Large Squares, 100.00 rained
on.

   Mix Alfalfa/Grass:  No reported sales.

   Grass:  Premium:  Large Squares, 135.00.  Timothy Grass:  Premium:  Small
Squares, old crop, 180.00.

   Straw:  No reported sales.
