Rock Valley Hay Report

___________________________________________________

Today we had a lot of nice alfalfa and grass. The median price for both was $102.50. Obviously, the market is low, and it looks as if it will be for some time. There was a good buyer crowd but not aggressive. The hay was much better quality than last week. We will continue to have auctions across from the old haylot- 2713 14th St. for the next couple weeks.

Today the market was everywhere. My opinion is that today’s auction was not a very accurate depiction of the market. If we had more steady auctions we would have a better judgement on the market.
