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 844 tons were sold the market was $10-20/ ton lower on big squares and steady to weak on round bales, No top end  dairy quality hay was offered. Top was $150/ ton on large squares mixed hay 3rd crop and $140/ ton on mixed 3rd crop round bales. Straw in big squares sold from  $36-40/ bale and round bales of straw sold from $20-82.50/ bale.

**** 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 we had a nice run of non dairy hay with mostly low end grass offered in round bales and mixed hay in big squares. We had our first derecho cornstalks this week baled dry with lots of big nubbings of corn inside selling at $33/ round bale.

Locally 7-14 inches of rain has fallen in the past week pastures have greened up and the drought has taken a back seat.

Soybean harvest is under way with the first reported harvest yesterday on April planted beans coming out at 15% moisture field had sudden death. and corn being harvest in Southern Iowa moisture is 32% .

Gov Reynolds signs HF 2310
A bill for an act removing the requirement to obtain a permit for vehicles or combinations of vehicles of excessive size transporting divisible loads of hay, straw, stover, or bagged livestock bedding that meet certain width, height, and length requirements. (Formerly HSB 525.) Effective date: 07/01/2020.
The oversize load permit nightmare is over on July 1st No longer will you need a permit to haul hay , stalks or straw , You will not need one for a county roads city or state roads , The law that has hurt Iowa farmers bigtime days are numbered., This is a huge victory not only for hay producers but livestock farmers has well. The ability to move your product around without permits , restrictions and DOT’s endless harassments of people who are doing nothing more than trying to move feed around in order to put food on people plates will benefit all of Iowa agriculture.
Dyersville sales Company who lobbied hard for this would like to thank the following people who helped make this a law.
#1 State Rep and US Congressional candidate Ashely Hinson. From day one she came on board and fought hard for this we can’t thank her enough,
#2 State Rep Lee Hein , when Lee saw the news story on Channel 9 he could not believe this was going on and vowed to end this, thank you Lee.
#3 Gov Kim Reynolds she got the message loud and clear and has stepped up to the plate to end this unnecessary requirement.
and a very special thanks to a person who helped a lot my friend Simon Conway.
