======================================================================

Compared to last week round bales of alfalfa sold steady on thin test.
Large square bales of alfalfa sold steady to 10.00 higher.
Round and large square bales of grass hay sold fully steady.
Ground and delivered hay sold steady to 10.00 higher.
Ground and delivered cornstalks 15.00 higher.
Buyer inquiry was good with all contacts stating the phones have been 
busy all week.
Prospective buyers are shocked at what the FOB price of the hay will cost.
Buyers mull the price over for a few days and then have been calling 
back to buy a load or two.
So, in short, hay supplies are very tight as most producers across the 
state are several tons behind last year's production.
Hay grinders are very busy for this time of year because feedlots and 
ranchers are having to grind hay as they are weaning or receiving bawling 
spring calves.
These bawlers, in Nebraska are moving roughly two months earlier than 
normal due to the drought.

Prices are dollars per ton and FOB they 
field or hay barn unless otherwise noted.
