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

   Compared to last week:  Alfalfa hay steady, grass hay firm.  Good
demand for alfalfa and grass hay, very good demand for dairy quality
large squares and for straw.  Best demand is coming from Wisconsin
dairy farms as the supply of alfalfa is very tight there.  There is 
a more abundant supply of poorer quality hay in round bales in SD.
Straw is in tight supply as are corn stalks as the weather did not 
cooperate this fall to make good, dry stalk bales.  All hay and straw
sold by the ton FOB, unless otherwise noted.
