Compared to last week:  All classes of hay traded steady this week.  Demand good and 
supply light.  Milk prices are ending the week in an incline, leaving many producers 
optimistic on future pricing.  Hay continues to trickle out of state to California 
at relatively constant prices.  Retail hay continues to firm up on very limited 
inventories.
