Today we had mostly good alfalfa, primarily good grinding alfalfa. Not as much grass in with good quality. The demand was strong for grass and very weak for alfalfa.

Today the market was weaker with heavier volume. Large number of buyers as the fields were too wet to plant. The quality was generally pretty good in the alfalfa category. The grass quality was mostly average.
