Weekly Montana Hay Report

***Due to very light sales receipts this report will be released 
bi-monthly until early August when heavier receipts can be confirmed*** 

***Next report release will be June 26th***

Compared to the last report: Alfalfa hay sold fully steady on very light 
movement. 
Mixed hay in rounds sold 10.00-15.00 lower as some producers sell heavy volumes 
of 
hay to make room for this years crop. The south west corner of the state has 
been 
the hardest hit by drought conditions as many produces express concerns over 
how dry
it is and how badly its affecting dryland hay. According to the drought monitor 
4.64% 
of the state is in a moderate drought, while 50.19% is abnormally dry. Demand 
for new 
crop hay is mostly moderate to good with many loads already spoken for. However 
no 
established prices have been made as producers wait to see what quality will 
look like
once its in the stack. All prices are dollars per ton and FOB unless otherwise 
noted.
