Alfalfa trade was slow to moderate this week. Movement mostly moderate. Dairy 
demand was mostly light. Demand from feedlots and other beef producerswas 
moderate to good. Alfalfa movement into the state from out of state sources 
was moderate to active. Grass hay demand was fairly good for good quality 
Bermuda, wheat hay and native grass hay. Buyers were actively seeking 
supplies of these offerings. Wet, muddy conditions persist and another round 
of winter weather is expected this weekend.
