Special Note:
***Next report will be in two weeks, weekly reporting will return in 
September.***.
 
Compared to two weeks ago: Hay sold generally steady.
Demand for hay was mostly moderate this week and slightly stronger in places.
Most producers are completely done with first and many have started on 2nd.
Most hay reported this week was from central Montana and producers continue 
to see interest from western exporters and dairies as they compete 
with local ranchers.
Eastern Montana has an abundant supply of hay as many producers report 
some of the best yields in years.
High freight rates continue to stifle hay sales in eastern Montana as 
the freight to get hay out is too high to make it competitive on a delivered 
basis.
Straw demand remains good.
According to the drought monitor 21.17% of the state is in Moderate drought 
or worse, unchanged from two weeks ago; 15.35% of the state is 
in an Severe drought or worse, unchanged from two weeks ago; 3.51% of 
the state is in extreme drought or worse, down 2.57% from two weeks ago; 
0% of the state is in an exceptional drought, down 0.63% from two weeks 
ago.
