We had several loads of new hay in today, some of which are unmarked on the report. Demand for new hay was good and the quality of the new hay was generally very good. Market for old alfalfa was off $20. Demand for grass was good, but the market trended $10- $20 lower.  We had a much larger volume today. We are selling some trucks, trailers, and also a 1066 tractor. You can find details at the bottom of the events page on our website, or you can call Paul at 712-470-1274.

*I signed up for an exercise class and was told to wear loose fitting clothing. If I had any loose fitting clothing, I wouldn’t have signed up for the class in the first place.

*Instead of calling it the John, I’m going to start calling my bathroom the “Jim” that way I can say I go to the Jim every morning.

**A burglar broke into a home. He heard a soft voice say, “Jesus is watching you.” Thinking it was just his imagination, he continued his search. Again, “Jesus is watching you.” He turned the flashlight around and saw a parrot in a cage. He asked the parrot if he was the one talking. The parrot said yes. He asked the parrot his name. The parrot said, “Moses.” The burglar asked, “What kind of people would name their parrot Moses?” The parrot replied, “The same kind of people who would name their pit-bull Jesus.”
