Alfalfa was steady today. Grass varied a lot, but was generally weaker. We had an inch of rain overnight which was a factor in the auction. We had our first couple loads of new crop hay in and they looked pretty good. Have a safe Memorial 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.

Farmer Dan got into his truck and drove to the neighbouring ranch and knocked at the door. A young boy, Eddie, aged about 10, opened the door. 'Is yer Dad home?' Dan demanded. 'No, sir, he ain't,' Eddie replied. 'He went into town.' 'Well, then,' inquired Dan, 'is yer Mom here?' 'No, sir, she ain't here neither. She went into town with Dad.' 'How about your brother? Is he here?' 'He went with Mom and Dad,' explained Eddie patiently. Farmer Dan stood there for a few seconds, shifting from one foot to the other and muttering to himself. 'Is there anything I can do fer ya?' Eddie asked politely. 'I know where all the tools are, if you want to borrow one. Or maybe I could take a message fer Dad.' 'Well, it's difficult,' answered Dan uncomfortably, 'I really wanted to talk to yer Dad. It's about your brother getting my daughter pregnant.' Eddie considered for a moment, 'You would have to talk to Pa about that,' he finally conceded. 'If it helps you any, I know that Pa charges $600 for the bull and $60 for the hog, but I really don't know how much he gets fer Howard.'

A carload of hunters, on vacation were looking for a place to hunt, pulled into a farmer's yard in the middle of South Dakota. The driver, Paul, went up to the farmhouse to ask permission to hunt on the farmer's land.  The old farmer said, 'Sure you can hunt, but would you be doing me a favor? That old donkey standing over there is 20 years old and sick with cancer, but I don't have the heart to kill her. Would you do it for me?' Paul replied, 'Of course I will,' and strolled back to the car. While walking back, however, Paul decided to play a trick on his hunting friends.  He got into the car and when they asked if the farmer had said if it was alright, he said, 'No, we can't hunt here, but I'm going to teach that old fellow a lesson he won't forget.' With that, Paul rolled down his window, stuck his gun out and shot the donkey. As he shouted, 'To be sure, that will teach him,' a second shot rang out from the passenger side and one of his hunting mates yelled, 'And me, Paul, I got the cow.'
