We had a nice run today. Generally quality was lower. We had a lot of hay that had some moisture after it was baled due to recent rains. Some 2nd cutting alfalfa that had been rained on. Same hay as last week sold $5-10 lower, the rest of the hay was lower quality. Grass sold generally steady. The new straw looked really good and sold moderately well with not much interest.

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.

The devil shows up in church and everyone runs out but an old man. The Devil says, “why don’t you run? Aren’t you afraid of me?” The old man replies, “Nope, I married your sister!”
