Hay market trade slow and demand light. Alfalfa price firmed up again this 
past week due to the pressure of the worsening drought. According to the U.S. 
Drought Monitor, above normal temperatures, low humidity, high winds, and 
below normal precipitation in recent weeks has led to continued degradation 
in southeastern Colorado and southwestern Kansas, introducing exceptional 
drought (D4) conditions into Morton, Stevens and Stanton counties. Abnormal 
dryness (D0) increased to 36 pct, moderate drought (D1) increased to 20.5 
pct, severe drought (D2) decreased to 3 pct, extreme drought (D3) remained 
steady at 5 pct, and exceptional drought (D4) was introduced at 1 pct. Join 
agriculture leaders from across the state for the VIRTUAL Kansas Governor's 
Summit on Agricultural Growth. Starting July 20, we will begin with our 
online breakout sessions using Zoom. More information about the Summit, 
including a link to the registration site, can be found at 
https://agriculture.ks.gov/AgGrowthStrategy/ag-summit-2020. If you have any
