Compared to last Friday, all grades of Alfalfa steady. A lack of 
higher testing new crop Alfalfa has increased demand. An abundance of feeder 
quality rained on supplies have put pressure on the market for that commodity. 
Demand good for green testing supplies, light demand for high moisture 
supplies. 
Trade turned moderate to active. Export market had reported sales this week.
Prices are dollars per ton and FOB the farm or ranch unless otherwise stated.

         A high nutritive content.  Hay is green and free of damage.
