======================================================================

Compared to last week alfalfa, grass hay and ground and delivered forages 
steady.
Dehy alfalfa pellets and sun-cured alfalfa pellets steady.
Demand was good for alfalfa hay with moderate to good demand for grass hay.
Quite a lot of alfalfa in round and square bales going out of state.
Cooler than normal temperatures have prevailed most of the week.
Snow out in the panhandle on Thursday with possible snow accumulations 
up to 6".
Not the type of moisture some are looking for this time of year.
But when the ground is dry something is better than nothing.
This precipitation will help start new grass growth is these dry regions 
of the state.
Some new seeding of alfalfa is planned.
Not as many acres going to alfalfa since corn and soybeans futures have 
been trading sharply higher and should bring a profit to the farmer 
this fall.
Standing alfalfa hay price was talked about on calls but, final price 
for first cutting has not been determined.
Prices are dollars per ton and FOB they field or hay barn unless 
otherwise noted.
