Hay, hay, Hay
Highfill Farms, LLC sells hay to livestock and horse ranchers in the Southwest MO area. Our mixed grass hay is produced largely from long standing pastures. Just as our animal friends were meant to enjoy. It is mixed grass which is mostly orchard grass and fescue but would also have crabgrass, brome, timothy, and other grasses. We do occasionally treat for broadleaf weeds. We set our price after it is baled and once we determine the quality. We price our hay first looking at the weekly Missouri Hay report. We generally price in the mid-range of this report but there can be regional or local effects that impact our prices. We try to provide "good hay at a fair price". Please give us a call with any questions on prices or quality.
Round Bales: Our 4x5 mixed grass round bale is baled with a John Deere 459 round baler. We almost always use the premier John Deere cover edge net wrap that protects the edges from damage and moisture penetration while also covering 15% more of the bale than normal edge wrap. Our baler is also equipped for string tied if that is a need you have. We use an onboard Agra Tronix BHT-1 moisture sensor and try to bale 12-18% moisture. Each bale weighs between 700-800 lbs. and is 58-62 inches. We sell 1 or 100. Whatever you need.
2024 price: TBD
Square Bales: Our square bale is a twine-tied bale that weighs around 50 lbs. They are baled with an in-line Case 8530 square baler. We use an onboard Agra Tronix BHT-1 moisture sensor and try to square bale between 12-20% moisture. We sell 1 or 100 bales. Whatever you need.
