South Dakota Weekly Hay Summary 
All prices per ton, unless noted, FOB the stack.

   Compared to last week:  Hay prices continue to hold at mostly steady levels.
Demand is moderate for the Eastern half of the state, with good demand seen 
from West River and neighboring states to the west.  Winter weather with 
rain is predicted for this weekend.  Road conditions have become a concern as 
is starting to go out of the ground in some areas.  Wet and muddy yards have 
some logisitical issues as some bales are freezing to the ground or truckers 
concerned about getting stuck when loading or unloading.  All hay and straw 
sold by
