======================================================================

Special Note:
Added hay to Central region.
 
Compared to last week all reported forages sold steady.
Demand was light to moderate.
Wide array of weather pattern across the state in the last seven days.
Some areas have had rain, hail, and freezing temperatures or a combination 
of all.
Reports from hay contacts in the west saying there were several pivots 
of alfalfa that had been hailed out for the first cutting.
Some fields will be harrowed or clipped to get the next cutting to grow.
It's hard to know how many tons of first cutting has been affected from 
the odd late May weather that has occurred across the state.
One bright side is the drought monitor has been decreased in several 
areas of Nebraska from the recent rains.
Some dehy operators are thinking of starting at the end of this week 
on first cutting.
Some producers in the Eastern area say most alfalfa is in the bud stage 
and are getting equipment ready to start next week if field conditions 
are ready.
Prices are dollars per ton and FOB they field or hay barn unless 
otherwise noted.
