• Alfalfa: Compared to the last report April 29: Hay trade remains very slow as several weeks of cooler than average temperatures and heavy rainfall continues to hang around and is expected in the week to come. Producers are eager to get a good cutting Alfalfa to establish a non rained on crop. Many producers are reporting that with the current cool nights Alfalfa fields remain in rough conditions and a very tough first cutting could be mostly grinder hay. No trades of cow hay or ground alfalfa this week for a trend. Demand remains moderate as most feed yards and dairies seem to be current as of now. Demand remaIns light to moderate for farmers and ranchers as grass is starting to grow as soon as warmer temperatures grass should flourish
