Hay market activity slow; demand light for all classes of hay; prices steady.
Farmers were able to get into the fields last week between rain events to bale
and chop some new crop alfalfa. Several warm sunny days over the Memorial Day
weekend definitely helped to dry fields out but much of the first cutting is
being put up as grinder hay. If you have hay for sale, and/or need hay, use the
services of the Internet Hay Exchange: www.hayexchange.com/ks.php.
