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

New policy for attending the hay auction now in effect. On Wednesdays we will only accept hay from 8am to 9:45 am and we are asking only buyers to attend, We are asking that No children or sellers attend the sale to keep the crowd as small has possible. Buyers can drive through the lot the day before and leave bids or we can order buy for you by calling the auction 563 875 2481 or Dale 563 581 5119 or Randy 563 599 1793, if you have any other questions just give us a call.

ATTENTION WESTERN HAY CUSTOMERS FINALLY IT’S OPEN HWY 20 IS NOW 4 LANES ACROSS THE ENTIRE STATE Sioux City to Dyersville is now only 4.25 hrs 

 Receipts 603  tons were sold the market was weak to $20/ ton lower on a rainy cold ugly day . Top was $245/ ton on large squares 2nd crop from Idaho. Rounds topped at $170/ ton on 3rd crop round bales from South Dakota   Dry cornstalks sold from $27.50 / round 

**** Attention cornstalk sellers, bust round bales of cornstalks have no value and should not be shipped to the auction, We highly recommend a minimum of 3 rounds of mesh wrap / bale. Stalks coming to market with only slightly more than 1 round of net will not be unloaded. The key to getting paid is having a bale that will hold together to get back to the farmers’ yard.  Also to avoid blow out bales of cornstalk turn off your PTO before kicking the bale out this will help a lot to prevent ripped bales.

Beef and dairy producers who pay the Beef Checkoff had not had a vote in 35 years. It’s time for a up or down vote and let the majority rule, scroll down on side to sign petition

For what it is worth

Today  the crowd was  smaller today the rain  and down right cold and nasty weather made it quite unpleasant . The cornstalk market just seems to be running out of steam a year ago we sold them, for $92.50/ bale today $27.50. While the hay market was lower today the virus is actually holding hay prices up,  Just take a look at the implement dealers lots they are all empty because they can’t get any equipment, Some new tractors are now out 10 months and alot of equipment is on back order, So you ask how is this keeping hay prices up? the answer is with no equipment moving there are fewer trucks to bring hay back to the midwest.  The virus has derailed production and if they ain’t hauling equipment out there ain’t no trucks to haul hay back.
