Hay auction this Saturday

RICHMOND — If you have plans to buy or sell hay this winter, mark your calendar for this Saturday, Jan. 19, at 10 a.m. for our fifth annual hay auction at the Madison County Fairgrounds.

All types of hay and straw will be available. We will have large rolls (5x6), small rolls (4x5) and small square bales for sale. Lot sizes will vary so that you can buy a few bales or several. Loading and unloading of hay will be available on site.

Alfalfa/grass, mixed grass, grass/clover, timothy mix and straw will be for sale.

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

Hay can be delivered to the fairgrounds Wednesday through Friday from noon to 6 p.m. Hay will not be accepted on sale day.

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 an average bale weight given. You will know what you are buying at our sale.

For more details, give me a call at 623-4072.

    The extension office has received numerous phone calls over the past couple of weeks about large wasps hovering in yards all over the county.
    This insect is called the cicada killer, and despite its aggressive name, it is not something to be scared of.

    Maintaining a controlled breeding and calving season can be one of the most important management tools for cow-calf producers.

    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.
