Minnesota's Houston County Forage and Grassland Council is sponsoring quality-tested hay sales for the 29th year. The remaining auctions will be held Jan. 11, Feb. 8 and March 14 at Green Power Equipment in Caledonia. Each auction will begin at 1 p.m. and all hay lots must be registered and tested between 9 a.m. and noon on the Thursday before each Friday sale. Straw lots can also be registered on Fridays from 11 a.m.-noon.
All hay offered for sale must be tested using the same forage-testing lab. The sale committee will collect samples for the hay analysis and results will be posted on the day of the sale. Tare and gross weights from any state-inspected/approved scale must be provided at registration.
