Market was generally steady with weak undertones.

~ It’s pouring down rain outside O’Leary’s pub in Ireland, Outside is an old Irishman, soaking wet, sitting on the ground in front of a large puddle with an old stick and a piece of string hanging off the end into the puddle. A guy walks up to the pub and sees the old man and asks, “What are you doing there, mate?” “Fishing.” The guy takes him into the pub and buys him a large scotch. The guy asks the old man sarcastically, “So, how many have you caught today?” The old Irishman sips his scotch, looks up and says, “Ye, it’s been a pretty good day. You’re the 8th one I caught 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.

Today’s alfalfa quality was much lower. Good alfalfa sold lower, and grinding alfalfa sold a little weaker. We did not have much good quality grass in today, and the market reflected such. Straw sold steady and cornstalks sold steady to weaker. It was a little on the chilly side today!
