We had some very wet weather during our auction today which made it difficult to sell hay. Alfalfa and grass both sold lower and erratically today. Quality varied. Bedding sold steady. Have a happy and safe Labor Day weekend!

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.

Four worms were placed in four separate test tubes. The first in beer, second in wine, third in whiskey, and fourth in mineral water. The next day the teacher showed the results. The first worm in beer- dead. Second worm in wine- dead. Third worms in whiskey- dead. The fourth in mineral water- alive and healthy. The teacher asked the class, “What did we learn from this experiment?” Little Johnny responds, “Whoever drinks beer, wine or whiskey doesn’t have worms.”

An old cowboy walks into a barbershop for a shave and a haircut. He tells the barber he can’t get all his whiskers off because his cheeks are wrinkled from age. The barber gets a little wooden ball from a cup on the shelf and tells the old cowboy to put it inside his cheek to stretch out the skin. When he’s finished, the old cowboy tells the barber that was the cleanest shave that he’s had in years, but he wanted to know what would have happened if he had accidentally swallowed that little ball. The barber replied, “Just bring it back in a couple of days like everyone else does.”
