California Hay Report

   Compared to last week: Premium and Supreme hay is mostly steady.  Hay below 
good quality traded 3.00 lower this week.  Demand light to moderate on low test 
hay and good to very good on milk test hay.  Wheat straw is showing a firmer 
undertone as many dairies are using it in replace of alfalfa in their rations.  
According to the USDA Drought Monitor: With June in the books, NCDC rankings 
for 
California for the July 2013-June 2014 period were the warmest and 3rd driest 
since 1895. The only drier July-June periods were in 1923-24 and 1976-77.  All
