We had a decent run at our sale today. Quality was lower on grass, and prices reflected such. Demand was also lower on grass. Alfalfa was decent quality and demand matched that. Straw sold strongly today and stalks were steady to lower. We had a few hay celebrity birthdays this week: Maggie turned 36 on Sunday, Otto Kaepelli had a birthday yesterday, and Harv’s birthday is today!

We now have the option available for you to buy select loads of hay through our website. The loads can be viewed on our website under the “Hay for Sale” tab.

My boss just asked me, “Can you come in on Saturday this week? I know you like your weekends, but I need you here.” I said, “Yeah, but I might be late though as the public transport is bad on weekends.” He said, “That’s ok. When do you think you will get here then?” I replied, “Monday.”
