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

   Compared to last week:  Alfalfa and grass steady as high quality hay 
supplies lessened.  Sub-arctic winter weather and snow experienced the 
area in the past weeks meant hay was met with very good demand for hay.  
Transportation was impacted again by cold weather and snow making moving 
hay difficult.  Weather will return to winter normal winter temperatures, 
with some snow mixed in, will help with a much-needed break for the area.
