USDA South Dakota Hay                              04/18 13:45

Weekly East River South Dakota Hay Market 
All prices per ton, unless noted, FOB the stack.

   Compared to last week:  Few reported sales of alfalfa, market was 
steady to weak.  Grass hay mostly steady.  Straw remains steady.
Pellets and meal steady.  Moderate to good demand this week but the 
market continues to be pressured.  The thought of spring and green grass
has livestock producers holding off and only buying as needed.  High quality 
dairy hay is in tight supply but sellers comment how difficult it is to get 
their hay sold at their current asking prices.  Grass hay is in abundant 
supply which is pressuring that market.  Hay producers are starting to get
some inquiry on 2014 hay contracts.  Normal temperatures have finally arrived
and soil temperatures are starting to warm.  Moisture would be much appreciated
to help alleviate the dry soils.  All hay and straw sold by the ton FOB,
unless otherwise stated.
