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

WE ARE NOW ON OUR SUMMERTIME SCHEDULE AND ARE CLOSED FRIDAY THRU SUNDAY FOR DELIEVERIES AND PICKUPS

 Receipts 318 tons.  Lite summertime  offerings with good demand  hay was firm to $10/ ton higher with very limited offerings and mostly wet , hot or low end hay offered, We had more buyers than bales today no top end or even premium quality hay offered again this week large squares were topped  @ $130/ ton  while rounds bales  topped @ $105/ ton NEW CROP STRAW IN 3X4 BALES SOLD up to $62/ BALE

Market commentary :  The hay shortage is starting to appear to be worse then expected, A winterkill that had lots of hay acres flipped to corn or beans has cut supply plus the western wild fires in Kansas has taken the carryover supply down to nothing and now the drought in the Dakotas and Montana has all but shut western hay supplies off even Canadians are buying hay to go north, Weather will determine just how high hay prices will go . Can we have a 4th mild winter in a row? If we don’t  look out.

Locally the weatherman had a huge miss and the hay farmers paid the price. Last Thursday they said it was clear sailing till late Wednesday (today) then it was overcast on Saturday and Sunday rained Monday morning and Monday nite and Tuesday Nite and Wednesday Morning and again Wednesday afternoon. So much for good going . Maybe the TV weatherman should get some new darts.
