We would like to thank you all for coming out to help us celebrate hay day! It was so great to see you all here! With a pretty heavy hay volume alfalfa and grass both sold lower. Buyer interest remained low. Quality varied tremendously and all classes sold lower. Bedding remained mostly steady though quality varied a lot.

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.

 ** I was in a long line at 7:45 am today at the grocery store that opened at 8 for seniors only. A young man came from the parking lot and tried to cut in at the front of the line, but an old lady beat him back into the parking lot with her can. He returned and tried to cut in again, but an old man punched him in the gut, then kicked him to the ground and rolled him away. As he approached the line for the third time, he said, “If you don’t let me unlock the door, you’ll never get in there.”
