Compared to  last week: Hay sold steady to firm. Hay movement was moderate to heavy over this past week. Demand was mostly good with some producers passing on bids to move large quantities of hay. Hay supplies across the state are worrisome for some as usage has been high due to drought and fires in some locations. Drought conditions continue to worsen with over 42% of the state in some form of drought, up from just over 40% last week. In Wyoming hay continues to sell delivered for 165.00-170.00. Several loads were destined for Wyoming this week.
