Livestock – July 2002 – Colorado Central Magazine
If there’s anything I don’t like about my small-time dealings in the stock market — the livestock market — it’s dealing with hay.
The basics are bad enough. The stuff is heavy and getting it, especially a decent supply of it, to my place is problematic. I drive to where the hay is, and in my case the empty rig is always going downhill. When I get to wherever I’m buying the hay, I have to unstack it, then restack it in my truck or trailer.
