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

   Compared to last week:  Alfalfa steady to weak.  Very good demand
for high quality, high feed value tested hay, only moderate demand
for lower quality hay.  Very good demand remains for corn stalks
and straw as supplies of bedding are rather limited.  Very cold weather
came back again this week as temps plunged to 20 below and high winds
keeping the need for supplemental feeding high for beef cow operators.
