Weekly Montana Hay Report

***Due to very light sales receipts this report will be released 
bi-monthly until early August when heavier receipts can be confirmed*** 

***Next report release will be July 24th***

Compared to the last report: Both old and new crop hay sold steady in a very 
narrow 
comparison. Demand for the last trading session was mostly moderate to good 
with 
continued interest seen from southern drought stricken areas. Wyoming cow 
country 
continues to purchase large quantities of hay from Montana. Recent rains have 
been
a hindrance to many central Montana hay producers as producers have not had a 
long 
enough window to put up hay. Many acres have been rained on and will sell as 
feeder
hay. According to the drought monitor 9.10% of Montana is in a moderate 
drought, a 
decrease of 5.41% in the last 2 weeks. 45.18% is abnormally dry this week, a 
decrease 
of 7.08% in the last two weeks. Dry conditions have been reduced in the 
southern half
of the state, however an increase was seen across the highline. All prices are 
dollars 
per ton and FOB unless otherwise noted.
