TRI-STATES LARGEST HAY AUCTION HELD EVERY WEDNESDAY @11:04AM

 Receipts 565 tons.  The market was weak to $20/ ton lower on low end hay, grinding hay ,hay with weeds and damaged hay but the better end hay was sharply higher ,  Top was last years 3rd crop western hay from Nebraska 162 RFV topping at $175/ ton Round bales of 2nd cutting alfalfa sold from $100-122.50/ ton, straw was higher selling from selling up to $24/ big square bale demand was good for the better hay and no so good for the damaged and grinding hay that market is saturated .

Locally the crops look excellent maybe the best since the whopper of 2002. The oats crop is a tell tale sign of the corn crop and this year the oats crop looks to be one of the best ever, When we have big oat crops we always get big corn crop which would be very welcome because in 2012,2014,2015 we were in the drought  category 2 or worse each year .

hay demand was better today for the better hay the coarse over ripe and weedy hay was discounted but pretty good prices were had for the 2nd crop made right

WE ARE CLOSED JULY 1ST THRU JULY 4TH
