MY local farmers say that square bales will be over 20. a bale so however much you hate buying it now DO IT! whatever you can get cause this winter you will not be able to get hay good or bad for any price. they are shipping almost our entire hay crop to texas and other drought states. i see load after load of round bales on Semis headed north..... it's gonna be rough for everybody this winter!~

"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....
