WOW.. going to check that out. Last 'feed' bill was almost $200.00 on top of hay. Going down the tube fast with these horses.
First cutting here some places got ruined so they green chopped it for a dairy.
This time of year is always iffy for hay growers . I am glad I still have hay and not buying at these prices, and I have some for sell for a neighbor and so strange big bales 120lbs and nice hay at 17.00 a bale and hardly anyone is buying. Prices will depend on drought conditions across the state and country, how much sells overseas, and how much the hay brokers offer per ton per field.
That's how I get outpriced !

I hope you like it
Should we have, finally, something here which costs less than anywhere else...

What hay is it you have? Pretty heavy bales!. The bales I used to get were 80-85 lbs. So the price was even worse. I had some oat, heavy bales, who lasted me until end of February, for 10$. Im planning on getting from this grower again. If the new feedstore will, I'll get my grasshay through them. Shouldn't be more than 12 at harvest. It's pretty nice hay, some alfalfa, too. Which means I wouldn't have to get that extra.

Myself and my friends who order hay by the squeeze up there always had good hay from Andre Musgrave Hay Sales. I would get my grass and alfalfa from him in Fresno, my girlfriend would order a few squeezes of oat and a friend of mine who is a shire breeder in Paso Robles would order a gazillion squeezes from him all never had a problem. His prices were lower than the others, but may not be as low as yours though.

A squeeze is the problem. We have to hand-unload and stack, hay is under an overhang. So getting like 25 bales at a time with the pick up is most convenient and won't throw my hay-stacker(I.e. Hubby) out of whack
So plan is as we did last year with the oat hay, buy a stack and bring it home in 3 trips.
The feedstore is up towards Turlock, 26 miles, so definitely do-able
BUT...made a note and filed it under "hay"....thanks

I have alfalfa hay. For people is SO CALI I think there is a feed place in Lancaster hemme hay (?) per hubby has the EGM feed. My prob with it, is I we need a 14% protien for these old horses and I find that in the dumor feeds about 14 bucks a bag at TSC. I always add a splash of corn oil and a tblsp or so of flax seed in the spring to help with coat shedding .

It is low protein, but alfalfa hay should make up for that easily. Have you looked into soybean meal? 44% protein, bunch of fat, too.
I just found flaxseed at our local California Dairy store. 50 lbs for 31$
Slowly slowly I'm finding all the affordable stuff lol

Thanks for the info! Hubby got home last night and I told him about EGM. He used to feed it and loves it, he said anything from EGM is good :) So we are going to get a barrel. We are feeding Alfalfa right now so I think the stable mix will compliment nicely.
I am feeding the Nutrena Triumph Complete right now. Its about $17 for a 50# bag and I am pretty skimpy with it. I just use it to feed the mare her hoof supplement and feed some when I catch and saddle. I was feeding Strategy GX in TX and it was $17 a bag down there, but at Big R here it is about $23....geez.
The EGM stable mix sounds like a perfect solution, cost effective and inexpensive.
