Demand for squares continues to be good on mostly light to moderate
offerings, with higher quality offerings in lighter supply and heavier
supplies seen on fair and utility quality hay. Supplies of hay in rounds
remains moderate to heavy as a mostly open, mild winter allowed for lighter
hay usage. Ranchers continue to buy hay on an as need basis. Straw sales 
lightened over the last week to two weeks as milder weather and lighter 
snowfall has slowed demand for straw. All prices are dollars per ton and 
FOB unless otherwise noted.
