Hay auction set for Saturday, Jan.19

extension Agent for agriculture and natural resources

MADISON COUNTY — If you have plans to buy or sell hay this winter, mark Saturday, Jan. 19, at 10 a.m. on your calender for our annual hay auction at the Madison County Fairgrounds. All types of hay and straw will be available. Bale sizes will consist of large and small rolls and large and small square bales. Lot sizes will vary so that you will be able to buy a little or a lot. Loading and unloading of hay will be available on site.

Hay will be tested for nutrient levels by the Kentucky Department of Agriculture on Friday, Jan. 18. We will also take an average bale weight for each lot of hay or straw. The weight and nutrient content of each lot will be posted.

Hay may be delivered Wednesday, Jan. 16, through Friday, Jan. 18. The auction will be conducted in the indoor arena and will take place rain, snow or shine.

This is the only hay sale in central Kentucky where you can purchase hay that has been tested for nutrient content and that gives you an average bale weight prior to the sale. Know what you are buying!

If you have square hay bales you would like to sell, especially alfalfa/grass mixed hay, give me a call at 623-4072. We are working to secure hay orders and top quality hay is always in high demand. In past years we have run short on mixed alfalfa type hay.

If you have any questions, please call Brandon Sears at 623-4072.

Educational programs of the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service serve all people regardless of race, color, age, sex, religion, disability or national origin.

    Maintaining a controlled breeding and calving season can be one of the most important management tools for cow-calf producers.
    Uniform, heavier and more valuable calves are key reasons to keep the breeding season short.

    I often flash back to the days from the mid to late 1930s when I was a paper boy.
    There were 10 or 12 of us who rolled out of bed at 5 a.m. every day, jumped on our bicycles and headed downtown to the Glyndon Hotel and picked up our papers for delivery.
