Weekly East River South Dakota Hay Market 
All prices per ton, unless noted, FOB the stack.

   Compared to last week:  Prices remain steady to firm for all
classes of hay.  Demand improved this week to good for all classes.
As calves have been moving into feedyards the demand for high quality
grass hay has increased.  There is also demand from Western SD for
lower quality alfalfa or grass hay that would be suitable for beef
cow rations.  Corn stalk baling was taking place this week, when the
conditions allowed it.  Frosty, damp, and overcast conditions have 
hampered progress of stalk baling.  All hay and straw sold by the ton
FOB, unless otherwise noted. ***  Note:  This report will not be released
next week due to the holiday shortened week, next report issued will
be on Dec. 1, 2017.***
