Idaho Hay Report

Boise--Compared to last week, Premium and Supreme Alfalfa steady. Demand moderate to good and supply light. Fair and Good Alfalfa steady to weak. Demand light to moderate and supply moderate to heavy. Export hay steady with moderate to good demand and supplies moderate. Retail/feed store/horse hay steady in a light test. Demand light to moderate and supply moderate. Most producers working on final cutting of hay for this year and trying to get the hay put up as some rain showers moved through the state early this week. A lot of dairies concentrating on silage making this week instead of hay needs. Milk prices on the futures board still struggling however making some positive moves upward.
