  • Hay that isn’t heat or weather damaged is a lot more attractive to buyers because they know that quality and nutritious hay will boost livestock performance and productivity. As a result, buyers will be prepared to pay more, and this is reflected in the market value of shedded hay.
  • The other advantage from a seller’s perspective is the market flexibility a hay shed offers. A hay shed allows you to store your hay with no storage fees and wait until market conditions are ideal and prices peak.
Like a hay shed, a grain shed, protects, and maintain the quality of your feed/produce (in this case grain) and therefore brings similar benefits.
