By Dan Martens, Extension Educator, Stearns-Benton-Morrison Counties
I am posting information from the December 6 Hay Auctions at Sauk Centre. The next auction at this site will be on December 20. 

Check previous posting for other sources of hay market information. 

Dec 6 2012 SC Hay Auction.pdf  ... Lots sold are grouped by bale type, kind of hay and 25 RFV points for alfalfa, and based on protein for grass. Straw and corn stalks are included. Averages are calculated where it seem appropriate.

History of Selected Lots 2012 2013.pdf  ... Average and Range of RFV and prices for Medium Square Alfalfa by 25 RFV points from 101 to 200 RFV for sales so far this year. Grass Hay 5-9% Protein is listed for this year. Medium Square straw is also listed. This also lists season-long average and range values for each of the last 5 years.

Graph 2001 to 2013 SC Hay Auction.pdf  ... Line graph of markets for Medium Square Alfalfa groups from 2001 to present time. This year's line is Maroon. Dotted lines indicate where there were not any loads in the group at a sale.

We are working with the Midwest Forage Association to have a Central MN Winter Forage Meeting on Wednesday February 6 generally in the St. Cloud area. There will be a similar meeting that week in SE MN Rochester and NE MN Cromwell.

Have you ever looked at www.haylist.umn.edu ? Do you have any insight on what seems to limit its use?
