Compared to two weeks ago, alfalfa, grass hay and ground and delivered
hay sold steady. Dehy alfalfa pellets sold steady to 5.00 lower with sun-
cured pellets selling 10.00 lower. Demand on the most part remains light
in most areas of the state. Colder but seasonal temperatures across the
state this week. Some producers continue to bale cornstalks and other
residues to clean the trash off of fields.  All sales are dollars per ton
