A LOT of the price of hay has to do with these stupid, high gas prices. YOU know how it is--anybody who lives west of the Mississippi realizes the long distances between towns, and every mile hauling is pricey. Think about this on November 6th.

$100.00 for a 1400lbs bale delivered. We buy semi loads and have them delivered about 500 miles. So it's $3400.00 a load. If we pick them up it's $40 a round. But once you factor in fuel to go pick up a load it's easier to get them delivered.

Wow I can't say anything about US prices but ouch I can't imagen paying that much. I only pay $2 a bale of grass hay out of field $3 out of the barn. $4 when I have to buy from a feed store. I buy 200 bales out of field so rarely do I need to buy else where, unless my hay gets ruined some how (like this year the roof leaked on it). $20 for pelleted or basic mash feed (maintenance feed). Large round bales go for $35 to $40 for something between 4 to 5 foot ones and depending on wrapped, or cores.

Our 40-50lb bales are $3.50-4, depending on cutting and quality. You see a few loonies on CL trying to sell for upwards of $6, but no one in their right mind would pay that much around here. Nutrena SafeChoice grain is $15 for a 50lb bag.

Round bales are crazy cheap; $15 for a good-size one.

Prices in my area in MN are around $2.50 a bale (50-60 lbs) for good grass alfalfa mix. And around $3.50 for pure alfalfa. You can get a round bale for around $25 to $30. I do all my own hay and it costs me around $1.50 to put it up.
