CENTENNIAL LIVESTOCK AUCTION
FORT COLLINS, Co HAY RESULTS Jan. 26, 2013
Tons Offered: 2100 Last Month: 1032
The hay market was very active with a very large crowd on
hand at the end of the day. There were people who went home
without hay. The market was strong with the top end at $330.00
to $430.00 per ton. The old rule still applies the greener the
hay the more it brings. We had 2100 tons of hay and had demand
for much more. Please read the representative sales below for
market values. All hay sold on a per bale basis unless other
wise noted. Next months sale will be held on February 23, 2013.

Brawner One of my favorite things about having
our farm, is that I get to introduce children to horses.
There is something magical about seeing a huge horse
and a tiny child together.
It can be a bit scary for both the horse and the child
initially, but the end result is worth every second of the
work you put in to make it a safe, comfortable learning
remember myself as a horse crazy child.
In retrospect, I am sure I was quite a sight in my
light green fuzzy bikini and cowboy boots running around on my
imaginary steed in Phoenix, Arizona.
Horses were all I could think about.
I can truly empathize with those horse crazy children!

articles sharing her experience raising horses in Colorado.

basic training sounds a bit extreme with a foal, but it is the
simple things that are introduced. Introducing things while
they are young makes it much easier to train them when they are
full grown, and ready for the saddle, or any other
specialization. Practicing trailer loading at the side of the
mare takes all of the fear out of the equation, unless of course
you have a mare that wont load!

riding and Travel N Corrals go hand in hand. Easy to take with you, easy
to setup. Horses tied to a trailer for hours can cause problems. Keep
your horses relaxed in a roomy corral as you enjoy the great outdoors
between rides. Sleep well at night with your Travel N Corrals placed
where you want them and in plain site of your bedroom window. If you go
to high school rodeo's, you will see portable corrals everywhere.

Hay and Straw.
Hay is a green immature leafing plant, be it alfalfa, grass, oats,
etc. Straw is a yellow mature mostly stem plant that has been
harvested to remove the seeds, usually wheat, barley, oats, rice,
beans etc. Straw has little feed value, used for bedding or sometimes
mixed with hay to stretch supplies and provide bulk to feedlot
rations. Though the plants used as straw can be used as hay if
harvested as a green immature plant in the beginning dough stage.
Cornstalks can used like straw. It soaks up more moisture than straw.

AgWatch Cameras for
Barn, Trailer and House,
Peace of Mind Surveillance and Easy Trailer
Everyone wants cameras, for backing to
trailers, to watch horses, cargo and even tires. A
rear camera on your trailer helps see what you can't with
trailer mirrors. See if your horses are eating,
drinking, fighting or what saddle fell off the rack. What attracted me
to AgWatch was price, the whole camera system with 2
cameras cost what just a replacement 7" monitor would cost for my
old camera system.
two least fun things I did back on the farm was hauling "little bales"
and fixing fence.
use to keep one of these going 24/7 when I was young and ambitious.
