100 lb bales- grass is $24, Alfalfa or Alfalfa/grass is $22. Risen $2 in 4 years- not much rise but, it is expensive! To wet for hay to be grown here, at least if you are lucky you can get non nutritional stuff that doesn't have more than a half a dozen handfuls of moldy stuff in each bale for $7, 60 pound bales. My friend moved away a few years ago, and they just moved to a place about 4 hours from me and they are going to bring hay down once a month to sell locally for $11 for 60 pound bales, so I will be getting that stuff. Luckily I have enough pasture to sustain my horses 24/7 for about 3 months of the year, and half day for another 4 months or so. Whenever I go anywhere I come back with a truck load of hay! I can only store a ton in my barn though. I tend to supplement the local not-so-great hay as busy hay during the day when the pastures aren't growing and are really wet.
