"Oh and I wish I lived closer to some of y'all. I'd buy all that unwanted hay off y'all in a heart beat. :) "
I know there are a lot of semi drivers taking hay down south. We had a drought during the end of the summer, but a wet spring. Funny weather! We did manage to get a great second crop of both grass and ditch hay. Because of the drought, there is still alfalfa in the fields that never matured for a forth cutting. I don't know if you can, but I would find a trucker who will get a load for you and buy it from MN! I bought ditch hay for $2, a mix for $3 and I have not seen straight alfalfa for more than $6! So if you buy a load, you could sell it to your friends and neighbors. I would do it for the cost of delivery and not make any money myself. I have relatives down in TX. They sold all their cattle because of the drought.
Off to the farm to see how much they didn't eat today....
