Hay Auction Market Report 3/14/18


Attention sellers if your round bales are frozen to the ground do not bust them to bring them into the auction, busted bales sell for half price or less. just wait till they unthaw plenty of time left to sell hay. Also we are seeing round bales freeze to the trailers cover the bottoms of trailers with straw to prevent bales from freezing and getting busted when unloading.


 Receipts 1334 tons.   Market was firm to $20/ ton higher with a few instances of $30/ ton higher than a week ago. Top $220/ ton on 195 rfv 3rd crop big squares had many loads over $200/ ton today Bulk of the large squares sold from $140-210/ ton. Round bales up up and away top $180/ ton on several loads had a lot of the rounds today sell from $130-175/ ton, Straw a little weaker 3×3 bales sold from $39-46/ bale Round bales of straw sold up to $60/ bale and round bales of cornstalks sold from $21 (busted) to $37/ bale demand was excellent

Huge crowd today showed up for a big run and things sold very well buyers were loading up and sellers are finishing up.

Looks like there will not be a Hay Expo this year, in the past it was held the 3rd week of June. The location in Boone Iowa has really hurt attendance they put it in the middle of corn and soybean company and make everyone drive 3.5-5 hours to get to it.
