Kansas Hay Market Report
                   
       ***** HAPPY NEW YEAR*****

Ground/Grinding alfalfa movement:   Southwest/South Central 
Tonnage:  12,258/5,159     Last week: NO REPORT     Last year: 8,771/4,978
            
Hay market trade is slow, demand was slow, and prices remain steady on limited 
test. According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, beneficial precipitation (0.5 to 
1.5 inches) fell from the western half of Kansas north to southern and eastern 
Nebraska, the last week of December. This recent precipitation prompted a 1 to 
2-category improvements to the short-term drought areas in Kansas. A 2-category 
improvement was justified where more than 1 inch of precipitation occurred, and 
90-day precipitation is either at or above normal. However, severe drought (D2) 
continues west of Garden City and Liberal, Kansas. During the past week, the 
abnormal dryness (D0) is at 23 pct, moderate drought (D1) is at 6 pct, and 
severe drought (D2) is at 4 pct.  If you have any extra hay to sell and/or need 
hay here in Kansas, use the services of the Internet Hay Exchange:
