Dec. 17 2015 SC Hay Auction Summary

By Dan Martens, U of M Extension Educator, Stearns-Benton-Morrison Counties,

I am listing links to view my summary of the Dec 17 Sauk Centre Hay auction and other hay markets and crop news.

1. Dec 17, 2015 Summary - All loads sold, grouped and averaged based on bale and hay or bedding type.

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

3. Graph - Medium Square Groups from RFV 101-200. The Red Line is for the 2015-16 market Oct Through Dec 17.

NOTE: Some of the bouncing might be because of some variation in physical condition of some the hay in these groups at some sales, especially where small numbers of loads are sold. There can be other factors.

dSauk Centre Mid-American Hay Auctions will be held 1st and 3rd Thursdays through May. There are other markets around as well.

Look for other crop news on this Minnesota Crop News Website.
