Compared to last week: Hay prices generally steady. Trade slow under light buyer demand. A few spot loads of hay traded this week but most large users of hay are trying to use up previously purchased or contracted supplies before new-crop hay is available. Much of the discussion on hay centers on possible price levels of new-crop hay. First cutting of Alfalfa is about 2 or 3 weeks away while Coastal Bermuda is about a month a way. Prices for hay and pellets quoted per ton except where noted. . . .
