Market was called generally a little stronger today and quality was decent. We have been seeing quite a bit lower quality alfalfa and grass recently. Buyer interest was limited today, but we are seeing more interest from outside our immediate area, and coming in from drought areas.

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.

An old man is eating some breakfast at a diner when three bikers walked in. The first biker puts his cigarette out in the old man’s pancakes. The second biker spits out his tobacco in the old man’s coffee. The third biker takes the entire meal and shoves it off the table. The old man, with out saying a word, gets up, pays the waitress and walks out the door. The bikers laugh and sit at the old man’s table. “Not much of a man, was he?” Asked the one biker. “Not much of a driver either,” says the waitress. “That man just drove his eighteen-wheeler over three bikes.”

I will never forget the look on the cashier’s face when she scanned the bag of birdseed and I asked her how long it would take before the birds would start to grow after I planted them.
