Hay Sale

 Hay is a precious commodity this time of year. Mountains of bales, round and square get stacked up one day and hauled off the next.

Kalona is one of many rural communities that are fueled by hay.  Cattle, horses, sheep and now days goats all need their staple, hay!  Almost all Amish farms in the Kalona area now have milk goats, only five years ago they all milked cows.

A local Amish man I know said recently, "When I go to sell my dairy herd, I will have to take them to the exotic sale!"

If you are looking for good hay, check out the Kalona Sale Barn, they have a hay sale every week.

There is also a Auction house near Frytown that has a hay sale every Wednesday.  Here is their link

    1. Hello Hold "EM auctions, thank you for your comment on this blog post! I'm not involved in any discussion forums, but I've been thinking that I should find some draft horse forums to chat in.
