Sauk Centre Hay Auction 10/07/2010

by Dan Martens, Extension Educator, Stearns-Benton-Morrison Counties

A small number of loads sold at the October 7 Auction. Click on SC Hay Auction 10 07 2010.pdf to see a report on hay lots sold based on groups sorted by hay type, bale package and 25 RFV points. There was 1 load of large round straw bales.

You can check more hay market information by going to
http://www.ams.usda.gov/AMSv1.0/LSMNpubs.
Select "hay" in the middle of the page. I like the East River South Dakota Market as another close by "dairy" market perspective.

Again, small numbers of lots may not good average for establishing hay market trends. I
was not at this auction, but in looking at the numbers, would expect the "good physical condition hay vs.
weathered hay" factor was present. I'd guess a lot of growers and buyers are taking advantage of very good weather for doing other work: making hay, chopping corn silage, harvesting beans and corn and hauling manure.
