Shell Rock Hay Auction

"IT'S A FAMILY THING"

Covid 19 update 4-23-20

We at the Shell Rock Hay auction are taking this situation very seriously.  We will still conduct our Auction at this time because of the need to feed livestock, and continue commerce for buyers and sellers.  With this decision we will be implementing several restrictions for the upcoming Auctions. 

All consignments will have to be to the auction Yard by 11:00.  We will not take your consignments after that time.  This will allow us to get everything unloaded and the sellers out of the yard before buyers show up to limit the number of people at any one given time. 

Furthermore we request  buyers only attend the Auction, this is not a time for spectators. Please come alone, and bring your trailer.

We will have hay available to buy by private treaty if you don't want to come to the Auction. 

Auction Times

Small Square bales  1:00 as usual once you have made your purchase(s) for the day please load up and leave 

Big Squares and Round bales will be after 1:45

No big bales will be sold befor 1:45

please plan accordingly.

If you are interested in hay that is towards the middle or the end of the sale please remain in your vehicle until we get close to what you need.

Nobody with out a bidding number will be allowed outside of your vehicle.

If you can't follow the rules or appear to be a spectator with little or no interest in buying you will be asked to leave

 We all need to do our part in limiting the spread of this disease or we will all be sheltering in place to prevent overloading the medical system.

WE will be practicing Social Distancing 

Please no children or spectators

Buyers should wait in their vehicles after looking at the consignments and waiting for the Auction to start.  

The Office will be available to Auction staff only and we will conduct business on a 1 in 1 out procedure like last time.

Checks will be mailed out to consignors on Tuesday as normal.

As usual we will order buy for those people that don't wish to come to the auction in person.  Call Curt or Brad for more information.
