UPDATE ON HAY
Here is an update on what our hay looks like. We have some really beautiful 2nd cutting Alfalfa. It is really nice, green, leafy, and small to medium stemmed. Third cutting and later is still our recommendation for stocking your barns with horse Alfalfa and should be available mid July but this 2nd will get you by until that time. The Oat hay is showing a lot of brown grass. It seems to be feeding ok but the Three Way hay looks much nicer and also feeds well. In most cases you probably will choose the Three Way over the Oat. The Rye is average looking and seems to be feeding well. We just got in new Mountain Grass from this year. It looks great! Orchard Alfalfa is still last years but is really nice. Our guess is we will see this year’s Orchard Alfalfa sometime late July. Teff hay should be available again by late July. There it is in a nutshell! Hope this information helps.
This past month showed little movement in grain pricing. I like it when I don’t have to change pricing! The grain forecast is good at the moment which helps keep pricing stable. It is just kind of a wait and see thing from month to month so stay tuned!
Steel covers a lot of items that we sell: Troughs, fencing, gates, dog kennels, panels, t-posts, and more! Pricing on steel is volatile and about all you can say for sure is it will continue to rise! I hope it is good for somebody, it isn’t a good thing for us or our customers.
IT’S JULY ALREADY!!!
This year seems like it is really zipping by! We are thankful that we are keeping very busy here at the store. Over the years we have seen all of the circumstances above come and go. We have learned to just roll with the punches and do the best we can for our customers. For example if we have opportunity to save by buying truckloads direct we do so. This year we have ordered more t-posts and wire than we have ever done in the past in an effort to keep hedging the price increases.
Scott and I truly appreciate your business!
