How Much Does Your Feed/Hay Cost$$$
I live in a hay deficit state, meaning we truck in a lot of hay as we don't grow enough (and our Coastal hay is really sucky too).
I paid $17.95 for One bale of timothy hay today at the feed store. Very nice looking hay.
I've found Timothy/alfalfa mix for $11.00 from a local woman, but the feed store sells it for $22.00 a bale.
I've been able to get a blend of orchard grass/timothy for $9.00.
Our yucky coastal bermuda hay runs anywhere from $6.95 to 8.00 per bale.
I also use the Alfalfa Cubes, which I soak in water. I paid $18.00 for a bag of them (and that lasts me a long time.)
I am feeding Nutrena Vitality 10%. I pay $16.50 for a 50 pound bag.
And just for grins and giggles, I pay $5.00 for a big bag of pine shavings (I use 3 bags per stall, about every two to three weeks).
