    have you ever thought of going together buy hay& have it delelvered to central local

    Has the board ever thought of going in together on a big hay purchase where we could rent a big truck then drive to pick up the alfalfa or perennial peanut hay or get good bales of hay at a cheaper price by buying from t he growers and we could make several drop offs around where we want the hay dropped.

    Do you think this could work ??

    There is a lady here that buys from a dealer and sells. It's pretty easy to find decent local hay here. We are in Louisiana, and I just paid $6 a bale for really nice Alicia Bermuda, out of the field. Where are you in Mississippi?

    It is a bad idea and does not work. Every load we have ever done this way has had neighbors yelling, screaming, and crying. Someone thinks that someone else got their hay, someone thinks the other person did not pay their fair share, etc. It is always wrong.

    wow good to know on both counts.

    I'm just over the LA/ms boarder in Poplarville. About 1.25 hours fron NOLA.
    Could you pm me the address of the pick up in the field good horse hay?

    Also Production acres:
    Where are you in Tn? Do you have alfalfa and what does that run? Or perennial peanut hay or soybean hay? I'm thinking of taking a big uhaul up somewhere and trying to buy some alfalfa or some other high protein hay and then possibly another load for just good first class horse hay . Everyone down here wants 25. A bale I do have one lady that sells it for much less but she is out.

    I was thinking of shipping my own down here. Whay do you have and whats the price and where are you located if I was to pick up?

    Thanks,
    Angi

    While living in Alberta the neighbor and I would go in on a big load. Most hay growers have a large trailer and many will deliver for a reasonable fee to several addresses if they are fairly close together. They have the machinery to load unless you want to do the grunt work to save a little more. I've done it that way too but went to the fields while the baler was spewing the bales out. The more the grower handles the hay, the higher the cost.

    I'll get it for you. The hay is up past Franklinton. It's not alfalfa, we have the same issue as you there. I live in Folsom.

    I have a lady that brings in alfalfa for 12.00 a bale but she's saving it for her horses now I think. I have been missing her every time I need hay I call and don't get her then I buy hay from someone else then she calls grrrrr now that I finally hooked up with her my horses are eating ALL their hay and not wasting 1/2 OF IT LIKE THEY WERE WITH the grass hay we were getting. And this is pretty stemy alfalfa but the horses LOVE it LOL i'm half afraid they wont want to go back to the grass hay. I've been buying it as one of several feed storees and the quality is not that great. Plus i'm usually paying 6.00 to 7.00 a bale and the bales are LIGHT probably 30 to 40lbs. The alfalfa is probably 60 to 70lb at 12.00 but the horses eat it all so i'm thinking that is the better deal. I'd like to get a uhaul and get a huge load of hay so I'm set for winter. I'm going to be planting my pastures this fall (if we get the needed rain) so I'll Need to keep the horses off of them for a few months.....
