Alfalfa Hay Update

Good News. The NM farmer said the barn we load out of in the winter is already full of nice alfalfa. That's very good news since our customer base grew last year, we ran out of alfalfa about eight weeks before the new cutting started in spring of 2009, and we brought in compressed bales to supplement until the regular hay season.

As of June 26, our barn here in Montgomery is out of the two-wire square bales until Tuesday June 30, however, there are some compressed bales available if you are out. These could tide you over until Tuesday.

Phone or email if you need something. Regular customers know our phone numbers or look us up on the Web under Messecar's Trucking.

A big thank you to our customers. Since we've had to deadhead (without a load going out), your purchases are helping keep alfalfa coming into Montgomery, County, TX.

Alfalfa for Montgomery County, Texas

We arrived last evening with another load of fresh alfalfa from New Mexico, fresh as in straight out of the field. The farmer's employees set the hay on the trailer with a gadget on front of tractor that picks up about 8 bales at once, called a Farmhand. They place the bales on the trailer and 6 men stack the hay six high. This process takes a little over an hour. Then they lift the tarps up and men help us chain and strap and tarp. Then the men ride the Farmhand down. Load is about 14' high.

The really fun part, I get to help untarp when we get home.

Come see us if you need alfalfa, 1 1/2 inch rock, bull rock. pea gravel, or road gravel.
