Weekly Montana Hay Report

Compared to last week: Alfalfa hay prices sold fully steady.
Buying continues this week as ranchers are still purchasing 
hay for winter. Hay supplies remain heavy, however buying 
from out of state buyers and western dairies continues to eat
away at supply. Demand for hay was mostly moderate this week 
on moderate to heavy offerings. All prices are dollars per ton 
and FOB unless otherwise noted.
