                Our Auctions are the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of every month.

                 Or volume continues to stay moderate, with 2nd cuttings being short for most people in our area due to lack of Rain in June and early July.  We did see our first 3rd cutting for this year with 245 small squares of mixed hay sold at $4.70 a bale.  Demand for good hay in big bales continues with limited offerings.  The top for this Auction was some 3x4 Big squares of beautiful 2nd cutting mixed hay sold for $115 a bale @1190 lbs($193 a ton)    

                    Want to remind people the prices we report sometimes have a wide range, this is reflecting bales size and quality.  We sometimes see a wide variation in bale sizes.

                 Over the last 45 days we ahve seen the volume at the auction dwindle to approx, half the volume we saw during some of the summer months.  the demand for vertually all types of hay is good.  if you have have that you plan to sell you may want to explore your options know.  If your know you will be needing hay this winter make sure you plan ahead, it may become harder to find the hay you want and prices could get higher.

                 Hay volume was up with Sellers traveling a little further to sell hay this week.  The prices on Small squares were down with most hay selling in the $4.00-$5.00 range.  Big bales stayed mostly steady with most big squares selling from $60-$70.00  bale, while rounds are mostly selling $75-$95.00 per bale up to $170 per ton. We are a long way from new crop or pastures so please plan ahead and look at your supply for the rest of winter.

                Our Auctions are the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of every month.

                 Hay supplies have shrung a little the last couple of weeks which have keep prices strong, and demand high.  small squares of really nice late cutting mixed hay topped at over $9.00 a bale.  Most big squares and rounds have stayed steady.

                Please do not bring broken bales into the Auction. If the bales are froze down leave them to thaw, and bring them in later. Thank You

                We are a long way from new crop or pastures so please plan ahead and look at your supply for the rest of winter.  

                  We encourage Sellers to take a look at the Market and consider selling as prices have been good, and if you are going to need hay this winter better start looking now so you don't get into a pickle.

                 

                    Want to remind people the prices we report sometimes have a wide range, this is reflecting bales size and quality.  We sometimes see a wide variation in bale sizes.

                Our Auctions are the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of every month.

                 a Nice run of hay this past week with more Small Squares than we have been seeing.  With the larger number of small squares, prices remained steady to slightly lower which could be expected after the $9.00 hay last Auction.  Most big squares and rounds have stayed steady, and the volume stayed about the same or increased.

                Please do not bring broken bales into the Auction. If the bales are froze down leave them to thaw, and bring them in later. Thank You
