Sourcing as much of our hay, chaff and grain from family run operations, we really enjoy working together with our growers and contractors.  Developing these relationships not only allows us to better understand the market situations, but assists our growers in deciding what to seed and bale.  Viability in agriculture largely boils down to consistency and predictability.  Although we cant predict the environmental impacts of a season, it is important to us that producers have the assurance of a market for their consistent products.
