I'm paying $125/1200 lb round bale of nice bermuda and there are a few bales of rye that I can have. I'm paying approximately $350/ton of good small square bermuda bales about 50 lbs each.

Hint for those shopping at TSC, they will beat anyone's lowest price on feed, especially if you buy by the pallet or ton. I buy 2 tons of Strategy per month and I'm paying considerably less than the per bag price on the shelf. I negotiate my pallet price every 6 months.

Thanks so much Dream Catcher for that tip! I had no idea, and for those of us with multiple mouth's to feed they SHOULD be giving us a better deal! I have never bought feed there becasue they always have THE MOST EXPENSIVE price posted anyplace. I'm currently paying 14.50 for the stradigy white bag (pink fore breast cancer awareness month) at the feed store I normally go to and TSC is 15.99 for the same feed. I'd happily buy a pallet to get a better deal. How many 50 lb bags are IN a pallet?

Also I'm looking for a new feed dealer becasue I was getting the small StandLee alfalfa compressed (40-50lbs) NICE hay for 12.99 a bale now they are telling me that it's 15.99 a bale and 15.50 a bale IF I BUY AN ENTIRE PALLET!!~ you have GOT to be KIDDING!! I hope I don't rue the day I told they no way was I going to pay 15.99 OR 15.50 a bale for hay!!

I found a local farmer/rancher that brought back several hundred square bales from Kentucky. I'd say they weigh 60 to 75lbs pretty stemmy alfalfa for 11.00 a bale of I get one hundred bales so I did and they horses seem happy with it, but after that nice green standlee hay it looks like crap IMO. BUt the horses clean it up so I'm buying it for now. I want to make a run to PRODUCTION ACRES AND GET SOME ALFALFA FROM THEM. It looks really nice and The price was decent last time I looked.
