Weekly Montana Hay Report


Compared to last week: Alfalfa hay sold fully steady. Moderate market activity 
was seen again this week. Demand for hay selling out of the state continues to 
be good with several loads headed east this week to Iowa and Minnesota. Local
hay sales were good this week as well with some ranchers buying hay in rounds
however prices remain steady. Despite a couple of early season snow storms 
demand
from ranchers remains limited as hay supplies remain heavy and no one seems to 
be in a rush to purchase hay. All prices are dollars per ton and FOB unless 
otherwise noted.
