SC Hay Auction Summaries Oct 1 & 15, 2015

I am listing links to view my summary information from the October 1 and 15 Sauk Centre Hay auctions and other hay markets and crop news. Prices are lower than a year ago and perhaps there is more price difference between better quality hay and hay shows weather issues during harvest.

1. October 1, 2015 Summary - All loads sold, grouped and averaged based on bale and hay or bedding type.

2. October 15, 2015 Summary – Same kind of Info as no.1

3. History of Selected Lots - averages for recent years, and each sale so far this year, Grass Hay 5-9% Protein, Straw
