How the heck do you get 100 bales per acre? What size bales?
Depending on the weather (drought, normal, etc) and the property, I've seen 30-60 bales per acre and its usually considered pretty lush around here.
And $5 is low??? Hay prices here are averaging $2-$4 per bale. It got up to $5 & $6 a bale when we had the drought, but prices have drastically dropped this year. Plus you have to factor in the cost of baling it - either having someone else do it or the cost of equipment upkeep & gas to do it yourself.
All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
