- Yesterday we told you that placing straw over your septic tank can keep it from freezing. Many of you must've listened. Today, a Rhinelander store sold through the bails of straw quickly.Farmers Feed Store has struggled to keep up with the demand for straw today. Homeowner's crowded in the store, hoping to buy straw for their septics. The owner ordered 5 loads of straw, including one for after hours. By day's end she sold about 500 bails of straw."Within ten or fifteen minutes, they're sold out. And then there's another two hour wait until the next load gets here," said Ramker.
Things got so busy, cars waited in two lines. If you come back tomorrow for straw there is something you'll want to keep in mind."It is first come, first serve. We are not doing any pre-buy just because it gets way too chaotic here to try to keep up with who purchased already and who did not," said Ramker.Farmers Feed straw sells for 5-50 a bail.
