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

   Compared to last week:  Alfalfa and grass hay steady.  Good
demand for all types and qualities of hay, but demand for the high
quality alfalfa and grass is vastly better than it is for the lower
qualities.  Supplies of high quality hay are much more limited.
A severe winter storm moved across the eastern part of the state last
week, bringing half a foot of snow and 50-60 mph winds, along with
temps far below zero.  There is a good amount of snow cover across much
of the state, keeping the need for supplemental feeding of beef cows.
Good demand remains for straw and corn stalks.  All hay and straw sold by
the ton FOB, unless otherwise noted.
