Hay market trade is slow, demand was slow, and prices remain steady. Seems as 
if 
Mother Nature is finally delivering winter weather to Kansas. Last Friday all 
but a half a dozen counties were under a winter weather advisory as snow and 
freezing rain spread across the state and a wintery mix of rain, sleet and snow 
is again expected today through Thursday. According to the U.S. Drought 
Monitor, 
no changes were made in the drought categories. Abnormal dryness (D0) remained 
at 23 pct, moderate drought (D1) remained at 6 pct, and severe drought (D2) 
remained at 4 pct. If you have any extra hay to sell and/or need hay here in 
Kansas, use the services of the Internet Hay Exchange:
