Bedding. Prefer wheat straw

Post by Till-Hill » Sat Nov 30, 2019 8:05 am

Wet here in midwest 0 corn stalks made that will last till spring. We use some wheat straw from Dakotas and Canada. Any got any leads on suppliers? I can find trucking if needed. 2 loads maybe more.

Local hay auction is reporting they have been getting 0 bales compare to 1200 average a week

Saw one large straw square bale ad on MN Craigs list last week. I know a guy who knows a guy who wheat farms by Fargo. PM me if you want me to dig.

Some corn and soybean stubble was round baled here.

What is grass hay going for down your way?

Some do yes, these hills we got beans are bad news to start with. Taking all the trash is kinda frowned on. I was going to bale ours but raining about 5 min after we got time anyway

Rock Valley Iowa and Pipestone MN both have fairly large hay auctions. They both had bedding sold last week. Last week there were balers running well into the night trying to put up corn stalks before those snow storms.
