Nathan Drewitz, Extension Educator-Crops, Stearns, Benton, and Morrison Counties

Keeping up with current hay prices is important for most livestock farmers. For this purpose, we categorize and organize information from recent hay auctions in Sauk Centre, MN. We then use that information to calculate the average prices and feed quality within those categorized hay lots. We also keep historical price data for selected hay lots and create graphs for the medium square alfalfa bales of four different levels of quality.

Listed below are the summary, history, and graphs related to the October 4th, 2018 hay auction in Sauk Centre. Also listed are summaries from the two hay auctions that were held in September.
