South Dakota Weekly Hay Summary 
All prices per ton, unless noted, FOB the stack.

   Compared to last week:  Very few reported sales this week.  Demand
remains light to moderate.  Best demand remains for high testing dairy
quality hay as those supplies are limited.  Pressure remains on the lower
quality hay as much market uncertainty exists for cattle producers.
Large offerings at the area hay auctions again this week.  All hay and
straw sold by the ton FOB, unless otherwise noted.

   Alfalfa:  Utility:  Large Rounds, 105.00.

   Sun-cured Alfalfa pellets:  15 pct 230.00; 17 pct 235.00.  Alfalfa
Meal: 17 pct 240.00.

   Grass:  Premium:  Small Squares, 5.50 per bale.

   Alfalfa/Grass Mix:  Premium:  Large Squares, 200.00.
