The Hash Auction Center in Berryville will be holding the Clarke County Hay Auction on Wednesday, November 17th at 10:04 am. (Hey, that’s what the web pages says: 10:04.) All loads should try to be in place by 9:30 am for inspection.
Held the third Wednesday of each month, the Hash Auctions hay auction consist of hay and straw for all livestock animals – horses, show cattle, sheep, goats, llamas and all other hay consuming livestock.
The auction company is looking for both buyers and sellers. The office will open at 9:00 am on Wednesday prior to the sale.
Buyers will be required to register before the auction and obtain a buyer’s number. An ID is required to register. All purchases must be paid for by conclusion of the auction in full. Forms of payment accepted are, according to Hash’s web page, “Cash and Good Check.” Key word, we presume, being “good.”

Terms for sellers include a 10% commission of the gross of sale. Sellers will determine if hay – straw, etc will be sold by weight (IE: Ton), roll or bale. If sold by the ton, the Seller must have a certified weight slip at check in time.

Seller agrees to deliver hay with a ten mile radius of auction site at no charge and may charge up to $2.50 per loaded mile over the 10 mile limit.

Sellers are highly encouraged to sell at the high bid obtained, However, Sellers will have the right to refuse the high bid price on any load, but a No Sale Fee will apply.
