Hay market trade was slow, demand was slow, and prices remain steady. Reports 
of 
harvest wrapping up are starting to roll in, but the majority of producers are 
still busy in the fields. Most areas received a taste of winter weather last 
week, but snow fall totals were minimal. Supplies of high quality hay are being 
reported as short, but here seems to be plenty of grinder hay. If you have any 
extra hay to sell and/or need hay here in Kansas, use the services of the 
Internet Hay Exchange: www.hayexchange.com/ks.php.
