customers. Cold temperatures and snow across some areas of the state. Most contacts have most of their hay spoke for and are waiting trucks for shipment. All prices are dollars per ton FOB the field or hay barn unless otherwise noted. 


South Dakota

Compared to last week:  Alfalfa and grass steady as high quality hay supplies diminished.  Very good demand for hay with sub-arctic winter 
weather and snow experienced the area in the past weeks.  Transportation was impacted again by cold weather and snow making moving hay difficult.  Weather will return to winter normal winter temperatures this next week will help transportation and give some much-needed relief to the area. All hay and straw sold by the ton FOB, unless otherwise noted.
