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

   Compared to last week:  Alfalfa and grass hay steady to firm.  Very
good demand for high testing Dairy quality alfalfa and high quality 
new crop grass hay, less demand for lower quality alfalfa and year old
grass hay.  Dry weather this week, across much of the trade area, made
for ideal haying conditions.  Much second cutting and first cutting of 
grass hay was made and baled this week.  Mild temps and low humidity levels
allowed hay to cure quickly.  All hay and straw sold by the ton FOB, unless
otherwise noted.

190.00-225.00.  Fair:  Large Squares, 140.00.
