Compared to two weeks ago: Hay sold generally steady.
Demand for hay was light to moderate.
Old crop hay sales continue to occur but on an as need basis.
It remains very dry in Northcentral Montana and across the front slope.
Buyers continue to search for hay to make it to first cutting.
Many producers are starting to cut first cutting in the central portions 
of the state, while eastern and southern Montana has some hay already 
in the bale.
Several producers report rains have destroyed quality for hay in Washington 
and Idaho and have buyers looking into Montana for high quality 
first cutting or old crop 3rd.
Several sales of hay were destined for western states this week.
Discussions of new crop hay contracts continue as two camps are establishing 
positions: Eastern and Southern Montana producers are more proactive 
in trying to establish the hay market as rains have helped produce 
what many see as a bumper crop, while central and western Montana 
are more reserved as they see dry conditions across the front slope and 
highline along with very good demand from western states as beneficial.
According to the drought monitor 43.93% of the state is in Moderate drought 
or worse, down 31.19% from two weeks ago; 19.96% of the state is 
in an Severe drought or worse, 9.35% decrease from two weeks ago; 9.17% 
of the state is in extreme drought or worse, down 3.86% from two weeks 
ago; 3.01% of the state is in an exceptional drought, down 1.08% 
from two weeks ago.
