2019 HERE WE GO!

 

As we move into the new year we want to say a special thank you for making 2018 another successful year here at Higby’s. 2018 certainly had it’s challenges with the rising steel prices. If you think about it when you drive in our driveway look around at how much steel we sell! That stuff was all affected by the increased steel costs. Scott did a good job of staying ahead of the price increases and purchasing when there were opportunities to save a few bucks. As a result we even saw increased sales in steel posts, fencing, and gates last year! So let’s take a second and talk about where steel prices are going this year..... Likely we will continue to see price increases until this tariff thing stabilizes. There are likely companies that have been waiting to raise prices and if they see no relief in sight will be forced to go ahead raise them. Of course it is possible the tariffs will go away and eventually steel prices will come down but that will take awhile as everyone works through their higher priced inventories. Anybody care to guess?

 

HAY UPDATE

 

We are doing well on keeping all the different varieties of hay available for you. As of early January it is looking like we should have enough to last through until the new hay season. So what do we have? Alfalfa, Oat, Oat Mix, Rye, Teff, Mountain Grass, Orchard Alfalfa. We also have plenty of Rice Straw and probably enough Wheat Straw to last most of the winter. Sometimes we don’t keep the Wheat Straw here at the store so ask ahead.

 

FEED AND GRAIN UPDATE

 
Good news to report here! The grain market has been relatively stable and looks like it will continue that way in the coming months. That means your bag of grain will stay pretty much the same price for awhile.
 

FEED GREATNESS EVENT

 
At the end of November we raffled off a $500 Orion 65 Cooler. We gave customers one ticket per $100 dollars spent. The winner was Lisa Dage! We have more goodies to raffle off in the future. Watch for details!
 
In closing, all of us here at Higby’s want to thank you for being our customers. You are what makes it all happen here. Scott is always eager to hear any concerns or suggestions you have to help us improve. We still meet weekly to address how we can improve in our customer service. Your input is appreciated!
