It’s essential that farmers holding hay and straw stocks need to take great care to make sure they are well stored to prevent weather and vermin damage. Outside stacks of straw are always best sold early in the season as quite often no amount of sheeting ever seems to prevent water getting in.
Our first sale of the season will be held on 4th December at Newbury Rugby Club with an entry of some 800 tonnes lying in Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Wiltshire, and Hampshire.
The auction system has the benefit of testing the market and generally allows a larger quantity to be sold in one go. Another key benefit is that payment is made in the saleroom at the fall of the hammer.
