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

Compared to last week:  Alfalfa hay steady to firm.
Good demand for all classes of hay this week.
Interest in buying hay has increased dramatically in the last few weeks.
As drought continues to tightly grip the greater region, hay users are 
starting to get concerned and want to get some hay bought.
The eastern half of the state is in much better condition than the west 
but still in a moderate to severe drought, except for an area around 
Brookings and Watertown are showing no signs of drought.
The cold overnight and cooler than average daytime temps continue to 
hamper the growth of alfalfa, along with topsoil moisture being short.
Corn planting has finished up with soybeans in full swing.
7.00 corn futures causing some alfalfa acres to be ripped up and put 
into corn production.
