There is usually a two week cycle to the hay auction around here. First week prices are low. The sellers talk and say iam not going to bring any next week. The buyers talk about the good deals and next week they each bring a friend. Next week half the hay twice the buyers. Prices go up. Buyers go away saying its too high not coming next week. Sellers say wow look at those prices I better take a load or two in next week. Next week comes around twice the hay with half the buyers. Price of hay is low and cycle starts over again.

 

Same here--except when it's rainy/snowy.

I am just now getting sold out. It is perfect timing for me, I just have to figure up what the nags and cattle will need and I am set.
The prices locally are in the tank, with premium 2nd sm sq alf bringing 150/ton and less. 400 miles South on the front range of Colorado the auctions have sold the same quality of hay at 300 plus recently.
