Weekly Montana Hay Report

Compared to last report: Alfalfa hay sold fully steady. Movement continues
to be light. Ranchers express dismay over the current market situation and
are bidding hay lower, however with good demand continuing to be seen from
out of state buyers, producers continue to keep prices steady. Hay producers 
continue to sell loads of hay weekly to Washington and Idaho. Straw prices are
slowly beginning to show up. Prices and asking prices are similar to last year. 
All prices below are new crop hay unless otherwise noted. All prices are 
dollars 
per ton and FOB unless otherwise noted.
