65 Loads 

Smaller run today. Quality was much better than it has been. Prices reflect that. All categories sold higher with the exception of straw. Cornstalks sold stronger. Most of the alfalfa today was new, and about half of the grass today was new. Buyer interest is stronger than it has been. Although it rained today, many are concerned about a dry summer.

** Walking home after a girls’ night out, two women pass a graveyard and stop to pee. The first woman has nothing to wipe with, so she uses her underwear and tosses it. Her friend, however, finds a ribbon on a wreath, so she uses that. The next day, the first woman’s husband phones the second woman’s husband, furious: “My wife came home without her panties!” “That’s nothing,” says the other. “Mine came back with a card stuck between her butt cheeks that said, ‘From all of us at the fire station, we’ll never forget you.’

68 Loads 

Market was lower today for both new and old hay.  Demand was not very strong.  Hay that had moisture in it had little buyer interest and prices reflected that.  The quality was generally lower than last week.

 ** Pro Tip: In the event of a tornado or other such natural disasters, place wieners and/or cheese slices in your pockets so the search dogs will find you first.

** Yesterday my husband though he saw a cockroach in the kitchen. He sprayed everything down and cleaned it thoroughly. Today I’m putting the cockroach in the bathroom.
