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!

Today the market was steady to weaker on alfalfa and grass. The cornstalks were stronger. The wet week had an impact on the market.
