The hay trade was moderate to active, according to the Oct. 31 Kansas Hay Market Report, compiled by the Federal-State USDA Market News Service, Dodge City, KS.

Demand was moderate for dairy alfalfa and prairie hay; moderate to strong for stock cow alfalfa and alfalfa pellets; strong for grinding alfalfa. Prices are from the most recent sales. Grinders continue to search for grinding alfalfa. Alfalfa producers are puzzled over the lack of demand for the real good dairy alfalfa. Some are selling it to grinders, who are blending it in with other hay to stretch supplies.
