ATTENTION ALL HAY HAULERS: Beginning Sept 5th, the road through Hudson will be closed and you will not be able to get through that way. It will remain closed for the month of September. We had a lighter run today with a pretty good buyer crowd in attendance. Alfalfa quality was pretty good and the market on such was the same to slightly stronger from last week. We had a fair amount of grass in and the quality was up and down. The prices reflected accordingly. Straw market was lower. We are selling some trucks, trailers, and also a 1066 tractor. You can find details at the bottom of the events page on our website, or you can call Paul at 712-470-1274.

** A man brings his best buddy home for dinner, unannounced at 7:30 p.m. after work. His wife begins screaming at him and his friend just sits and listens in. Wife: “My hair and makeup are not done, the house is a mess, the dishes are not done, I’m still in my pajamas and I can’t be bothered with cooking tonight! Why did you bring him home?!” Husband: Because he’s thinking of getting married and I promised him a demo!”

***Marriage is like a deck of cards. In the beginning all you need is two hearts and a diamond. By the end, you wish you had a club and a spade.

** A state trooper pulled over a man for speeding one afternoon. After the car pulled over the officer took the gentleman out of the car and told him to put his hands on the hood of his car. The trooper told the man, “Sir, the reason I stopped your vehicle is because you were going 80 miles per hour over the posted speed limit and it took me miles to catch up to you.” The man said “I’m sorry officer, but there’s a good reason why I was speeding.” The officer looked at the man and said “if you can give me one good reason why you were speeding, I will let you off with a warning.” The man began to explain, “A few years ago my wife ran off with a state trooper, and when I saw you in my rearview mirror, I panicked. I thought you were bringing her back!” Laughing, the officer told the man to have a nice day.
