Hay Auction Market Report 1/10/18



We need truckers for large squares and large round bales from Illinois to the auction if you can help let us know


 Receipts 1340 tons.   Good weather and a good run shows up prices were weak to $20/ ton lower top was $215 on 193 rfv big squares. Round topped at $165/ ton with the bulk of all the hay selling today from $125-165/ ton, Straw lower stalks were higher.

Market commentary  We had a huge crowd today demand was very good but prices just a little softer under very heavy offerings. In general things sold very well with corn at insult price levels and beans not much better, dairy prices just down right awful and fat cattle prices nothing to get to excited about the hay market continues to be the lone bright spot and a very sought after commodity, Sellers are in the drivers seat and it looks to stay that way for some time to come.
