Weekly Montana Hay Report

Compared to last week:  Alfalfa was steady this week and excellent movement
was seen across the state. Demand for Alfalfa was moderate this week on 
offerings. Grass hay experienced much of the same movement volumes as alfalfa. 
The western half of the state continues to remain in extreme drought and this 
region continues to see the best demand for both grass and alfalfa. Wildfires 
continue to cause smoky, hazy conditions for much of the central and eastern 
half of the state. This has forced many producers to watch the forecast very 
closely as hay drying times have increased drastically. All prices are dollars 
per ton and FOB unless otherwise noted.
