Local Oxbow producer Marlin Shain expressed in regards to his Hay Bails, “Well, we actually have people very interested in it and I am getting lined up with trucks. We’ve sold a few bails out West, but everybody’s just waiting as far as we can tell.”
“Well we’ve bailed all summer and we're trying to get some straw lined up too. And the last few years we've dealt in hay. Yeah I guess that’s all I did last year was sell hay.” Shain mentioned when asked about his last year of selling bails.
“Yeah, I haven't been out West but everybody out there, they're really dry.” Shain mentions about the state of the Western side of the province. “I think its fairly soon, I know there are some loads going out. And I know we've got people coming to look but they haven't been here yet and we're just busy in the field right now as we speak.”
With regards to his own personal harvest, “Yeah I grew up in Glen Ewen and been here (Oxbow) for 16 or 17 years now. My son and I are basically farming together. We've done about 13 quarters this year. But yeah were just trying to get finished up and lined up. And get to more serious stuff, cause those guys out West are hurting pretty bad.”
Marlin is committed to continue to support others in our province.
