My second cutting of sorghum sudan was a flop-nada as was my first cutting of Bermuda-nada. As usual, the faucet runs full blast so you can't bale winter-spring crops and when it turns off it turns off so you can't bale summer crops.....no product.

Starting to see Wheat straw, Corn stalks, Soybean plants (whatever that is) and Milo bales selling for what good hay ought to sell for. Some are ashamed of the bale size so they don't post it.

Stood at a consignment auction yesterday afternoon. They could not get a $25.00 bid on round bales. It was good grass hay, still green looking inside the bale.

Here in East Texas, our 4x5 rolls average about $50-$60 a roll. I sell for $60 to my normal customers, but only because I deliver and its all fertilized with no weeds. Other hay farmers around the area are charging from $75-$100 a roll to the buyers that are coming in from the surrounding cities.

Strange summer here in Missouri. I'm south of St. Louis and we have had decent rainfall almost all summer. My farmer friend's fields are better than knee high for his third cutting. The lady on the news yesterday said there is a three county area that has had good rainfall, but outside that area the state is in drought. She said livestock farmers were already into the hay and others were selling off their herds.

Well you have been to my place one time and up till this week we where over 4 inch behind for the year. By this time most years my hay barn if over half full but not this year or last year. Looks like I may get a second cutting if it does not get cold to early and we get a bit more rain. By the way isn't there a town in that area called Bontere or something like that?? Back I nth 80s I would drive out there to pick up what was called Ni-Pack which was a safe type of explosive much like TNT. Wish I could still get he stuff I have a few little rocks that I need to move but have nothing that will do more then make them shake. When I say little some are the size of a full size pickup

Yes we do. It's about as close to me as St. Louis. It's Bonne Terre Missouri. Apparently it means beautiful land. I haven't been through it enough to know about the explosives there.

Back in the 80s the first time I got the Ni-Pack stuff I had to drive there and fill out paper work. After that I could call them and they would meet me someplace close and I could order how much I wanted and pay the driver for it. But laws have changed a whole lot and I can not get the stuff any more. Sure would be nice if I could I have some small rocks I need to move and I have nothing that will most a rock the size of a pickup truck

Must be some strong stuff. I can see where that would be tightly regulated now. Good luck moving them.

1 stick of Ni-Pack was about the same as one stick of TNT. So yes it would make a very big bang. One time we where blowing some rock and had a rock go flying. It went straight up to the point we could not see it. Then we saw it and it landed in my small lake. Never have found it
