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

Compared to last week:  All classes of hay steady.
Good demand remains for all types and qualities of hay as the extreme 
drought has increased the need for supplemental hay.
Fourth cutting of alfalfa finished up in those areas lucky enough to 
get rains later in the summer.
Soybean harvest is in full swing and corn harvest has begun as the mild, 
dry weather continues.
Cattle producers in the west are selling calves early, some liquidating 
cows, as the forage supplies are very short in those regions.
Calves are arriving in feedyards which is keeping demand for high quality 
grass hay very high.
