======================================================================

Compared to last week:  Alfalfa and grass hay steady.
Moderate demand currently for all types of hay.
Dairies are starting to show some resistance to the price of alfalfa, 
which is resulting in few trades currently.
Feedlots that buy grass hay to start calves on feed haven't really entered 
the market yet which is keeping the grass hay market rather slow.
Dry, drought conditions remain which has allowed some very high quality 
hay to be made yet, especially on fourth cutting alfalfa.
Drier and warmer than average weather again in the forecast for next week.
Many hay growers are busy with their attention focused on soybean harvest 
that began this week.
