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

 Receipts:520 tons. Lite summertime offerings with fair  demand most of the hay was wet or damaged or going thru the curing process lots of poor quality hay again this week, Top was a load of new crop round bales MADE RIGHT AND STORED INSIDE sold for $140/ ton. Top on large squares 3rd crop from 2014 was $125/ ton.  The bulk of the large squares sold from $85-100/ ton while the bulk of the round bales mostly all were too wet sold from $10-50/ ton. Straw was lower but still doing quite well selling from $44-45/ large square bale.

Locally no dry hay has been baled in 3 weeks and with a window for a few good days ahead every discbine in the country is running. 1st crop should be wrapped up by the weekend and a start on 2nd crop under way.

With the big jump in the grain market this week many people are wondering if we will see a jump in hay prices. With production problem across the entire country and no dairy quality hay available  anywhere a jump in top end hay prices seems quite likely when some becomes available. Remember corn can only go up $.30/ day and beans can go up $.60/ day but hay is not limited to how much it can go up in a week. Could we see a $100/ ton increase in a week ? We have in the past.
