Rock Valley Hay Report

Thursday June 13, 2024

54 Loads
___________________________________________________

Today we sold over 50% new alfalfa and about 25% new grass. The market on the alfalfa and grass is not very well established which makes consistency very difficult. The better load of straw sold very well and the poorer straw was met with little interest. But in a general sense the market sure is lower.
Wishing everyone a Happy Father’s Day!

Rock Valley Hay Report

Thursday June 6, 2024

49 Loads
___________________________________________________

The market was lower today. There were 6 loads of new alfalfa with excellent quality and sold from $117.50 - $165. The old alfalfa sold steady to weaker with the quality being mostly good. With little interest in grass hay, the grass market was weaker across the board. Cornstalks were steady today. Sales every Thursday at 12:30PM
ATTENTION: The road/bridge located just west of the Haylot is closed. Please come in from the East. The city predicts it will be reopened next week.
