    There's a hay barn across I-20 from Teskey 's, have you price matched those two places? (Teskeys and The Hay Barn) Teskeys has some beautiful 3 string alfalfa.

    Jealous. I'm spending $80 for brome bales that are a scosh bigger and $6 for alfalfa mix. All delivered less than 10 miles down the road

    Mine aren't delivered but are only 5 miles down the road. Squares would be $6 if we got them out of the barn instead of in the field behind the baler. $40 for big rounds I feel is a steal, but we have been close friends with the hay guy for years. Maybe we get a discount?:X3:

    I forgot about Horseman's Supply in Wford also. It's like a smaller version of Teskey's.

    On the east coast we are dropping orchard and Timothy for 5$/square off the field I’m not sure how much once we store it

    We are doing custom baling this year as the main purpose is cattle so if someone wants squares then we will be getting a total the rest is going to be round baled

    I buy direct from the farm.

    I was paying $6.50 per bale for alfalfa until last week. Old crop ran out... new crop is $9.

    I expect to pay drastically less for the second cutting; the field is across the road from my house.... I'll be picking up the bales myself from the field.

    We're in the middle of a horrible drought, I expect sky high hay prices this year. Luckily we raise most of our own, my dad gave us 100 extra bales to have and I have some lined up to buy from my brother if we dont get enough off our land.

    two string grass hay (50-70pounds) are anywhere from $8-12 right now, big bales are going for $120 a ton.
    I expect it to rise significantly through the summer
