ApolloRider on that hay weight 60-75lbs.
I think you will like it here if you move here..There is horse community, functions, farming ect~ everywhere...
It is pricey to live here but again the wages make up for that so it evens out a bit..

I agree Wares lol! Everything here is expensive...

Apollo....check Craigslist Fresno, Merced, Modesto. Lots of hay offered.
I get 100-110 lb bales of oat hay for 11$, from the grower. Alfalfa, 90-100lb bales run between 12 and 15$, grass hay, IF you can find it, 90lb bales 15-20$
I was getting orchard/timothy, 85lb bales, from the feedstore for 21$, all winter.

Don't know if you'd be considering my area, Merced county, but next to us is a place for sale, probably 5-10 acres, house, well, irrigated, 498, I think, and adjacent 20 acres, 245k....all flat, you'll see Thursday who will visit Sunday

I have lived around Fresno/Clovis my entire life... In the "mountain" communities of Auberry and Prather and Tollhouse and North Fork, etc.

I currently live roughly halfway between Fresno and Yosemite around a pretty populated town called Coarsegold, which is still in that general vacinity. In Coarsegold, the hay prices have been pretty consistently between $18 - $35 for a bale of grass hay, and alfalfa is usually slightly cheaper. The feed store that we buy from is by no means the cheapest in the area, but it's usually around that regardless of which store you purchase from.

No one irrigates here, so grazing alone is usually not enough here. It also almost never rains. Cause it's kind of a desert and stuff. :)

It's also yellow. So, so yellow. All of the time. Except for a month or so in spring. But then yellow. So much yellow. And brown. Yellow.

Welcome to the stinky polluted party! Maybe we'll be seeing you around!

Ai-yup! Mudpie and I are actually staying with a friend in Oakdale right now and the grass hay here is $14.95 and I'm just rolling around with glee! ;)

Fortunately, the prices dropped to $18 a bit before we left, but when Mudpie sustained his suspensory injury I had to switch him to grass hay I discovered that unfortunate pricing... I gagged every time I had to buy a new bale...

Merced may be a little far. My husband has some family there I think.

I did actually check craigslist just asking about people who sold hay. I got quite a few responses. I was thinking it would cost a lot more than it actually does.
The suspense is killing me. We were supposed to find out last friday whether or not we are moving. This is the 3rd time we've gone through a 'possible' relocation.
So annoying...

Whats the address? It's worth a look my husband would be traveling all over that area so we have a wider range than most people.

Where I am in north CA it is $22 for grass hay, $24 for Alfalfa/grass, and $26 for Alfalfa. 120 pounds. It is insane. Can't grow hay where I am, too wet. It has raised $2 in the last 5 years, not a lot, but it is still insanely expensive. It is great hay though. The only other hay is crap moldy stuff for $8.
