Well the other side of the spectrum boots... We have so much snow we are having to buy extra hay, and we are really worried about the flooding in the spring. With all the water we are supposed to get in the summer, there won't be much good hay around. Hay prices will go up here, and more animals will be sold. Right now our prices are quite low compared to yours, we pay around $20-$25 for a 600-800 lb bale of alfalfa/grass hay. But if prices go up. It'll be crazy around here for sure.
My Dad bought what he thought was enough hay for the winter and then had to go and buy more just a couple weeks ago because winter is lasting so long and we have so much snow. I'm basically paying double this year compared to last year. So the snow has it's advantages and disadvantages.
I hope that things start looking up there for you and your fellow ranchers.
