Today the alfalfa market was mostly steady with good quality. The market on grass was generally weaker and mostly average quality. The bedding market remains very weak. Many farmers were busy planting corn as they’re trying to beat the forecasted rain for tonight & tomorrow. REMINDER: 4/29 will be our last Monday sale for the season, after that we will only conduct Thursday auctions. Thank you all for making this a great winter season!

Today we had a small run, the market was mostly steady. Very little interest in cornstalks.
REMINDER: We only have one Monday auction left for the season, our Thursday auctions are year round.
We would like to congratulate Aaron & Lizzy Fluit on the birth of their beautiful newborn Isabel Mae!
