As I've said before, I think I'll move to your side of the ocean. We've had a bad year on crops this year, with the bizarre weather and floods.
Normally a small bale here is about £3, So approx $6 in your money, For a large round is normally £40, approx $80.
But with the bad weather, prices are currently at Small bales £4 to £5 ($8 to $10) and large rounds £50 ($100). And they are expected to increase again. :(
