Hay Auction Market Report 4/27/16


 Receipts 888 tons.  The market was steady large squares topped at $160 and round bales topped at $145/ ton. Straw was steady and stalks were lower crowd a little smaller today everyone busy in the fields trying to beat the rain. Some farmers are completely done with planting while others haven’t started so I guess we are right on pace.

Winterkill is a hot topic at the hay auction and now Northern Illinois has joined the listed of wiped out, hay prices are going to increase again so taking on inventory is maybe a good investment. Early guesses on new crop hay prices are 10-20% higher unless the rains keep missing us then could get very interesting has we have never seen a drought preceded by a winterkill.

3×4 bales of extreme high quality feeding straw available for immediate sale @$45/ bale on our lot come and get it.
