That price doesnt seem out of line to me. If your paying $175 for pasture board and then $5 a bale when she needs extra. We are paying $4.50 a bale this year for brome. 5 bucks with them tossing it to her isn't out of line. I know I'm not far from you Brandon, so the prices should be about the same for hay in your area.
