Rock Valley Hay Report

Thursday January 19, 2023

40 Loads
___________________________________________________

The hay market was weaker today with a smaller than normal buying crowd. Due primarily to recent snowfall. Straw was steady and cornstalks were stronger.

As many have heard, we suffered a major fire of our office and shop. Please bear with us as we are making headway with a construction office trailer in place and operating now. All auctions will continue on Monday & Thursday at 12:30.
