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

WE ARE NOW ON OUR FALL SCHEDULE AND ARE CLOSED FRIDAY THRU SUNDAY FOR DELIEVERIES AND PICKUPS Till Nov 24th

 Receipts 581 tons.  Light Fall  offerings with good demand  hay was weak to $20/ ton lower the heavy rain fall of well over 2 inches made for a soggy day, Top on big squares was a nice semiload of 3rd crop from Nebraska 188 rfv that sold for $210/ ton round bales topped at $125/ ton on 3rd crop mixed hay stored outside. Straw was mixed the wet straw sold from $27-31/ bale while the dry straw from Iowa topped the market at $51/ 3×3 bale, Cornstalks were firm topping at $36/ bale

Market commentary  After  16 up weeks today we set back a little with the dreary weather a major factor, Straw and stalks sold very well again today but the heavy rainfall the night before just dampened the whole day.

Locally  5 inches plus of rain the last week has all but stopped field work, We have gone from bone dry and cracks in the ground to the river running full in the last week, Still about 25% of the beans left and all most all of the corn, if it remains wet with a major rain event several times / week this could turn into what was once looking like great harvest weather and a quick finish to a muddy nightmare that will stretch out to Xmas.
