Compared to last week alfalfa hay sold fully steady with grass hay, cornstalks and dehy pellets trading steady. Buyer inquiry picked in some areas of the state as they look for all types of hay to buy. Some concern if there will be enough baled cornstalks to get feedlots through the winter. If Mother Nature will melt and dry fields cornstalk production will start up again. Some corn still left in the field across different areas of the state. All sales are dollars per ton FOB the field or hay barn, unless otherwise noted.
