Hay sales limited by availability and transportation costs

A Wisconsin Extension agent who monitors hay sales throughout the Midwest says it’s still hard to buy hay, even as many producers are cutting the second crop.

Richard Halopka compiles the hay report and tells Brownfield, “Limited sales, you know, that’s kind of the talk but prices, while they have backed off a little bit, you know, it’s not extreme, but just limited lots available at the auctions.”

Halopka says he used to get a report of hay available at auctions that was three or four pages long, but now it’s often just a page and a half.
