This information is for the Sauk Centre Hay Auction held on April 3, 2014.

Here are the reports:

April 3 2014 SC Hay Auction.pdf  Individual lots sold are sorted and averaged by type and quality.

History of Selected Lots 2013-2014.pdf A summary of past 4 years and individual auctions so far this year.  

Graph 2001 to 2014 SC Hay Auction.pdf   A line graph of for average from each sale 2001 to 2014 for Medium Square Alfalfa groups from 101 to 200 RFV.

As noted before, think carefully about averages.

The graphs might show a little up-turn in the market as we sometimes do in the spring as on-farm supplies run lower and first crop hay harvest is a ways off yet. You can do your own thinking about that. It was a wintery weather day on April 3 as you headed east from Sauk Center to the Wisconsin border.
