Still way behind on soil moisture for hay, all the hay is gone from this area, all depends on if we can make hay and not have to feed in July like last year.

We depend heavily on mountain snow pack for our irrigation needs. It is at 80% of normal and supposed to get a foot of snow in the mountains tonight. Last year we were near normal through February and quit. We hope to keep getting some precip. along as most grass and hay reserves are limited.
