Cool Just Wondering!

I was just wondering how much a bale of hay costs out in the MidWest. Over here in NC a bale cost roughly $3-5 dollars!

Wow.. how does it come by round bales?

Goodness, around here, horse quality alfalfa will cost you about $180 a ton if you get it in small bales. It is a bit cheaper if you get it in large square bales or round bales. I buy big square bales that are 3x3x6 and weigh about 800 lbs for $50 apiece. I don't really know about grass hay prices, we rarely feed that.

Here we pay anywhere from $3-$10 per bale for local hay.

The average around here is normally $3 a bale

Wow what a deal! I buy a low sugar orchard grass which is the ONLY hay my picky boy will eat and pay $12.75 a bale for for it.

Dang that is expensive. I seen where people were feeding alfalfa hay to them. Do you just put it out like you do a regular bale of hay. Or do you just give them a pinch?

For me, all our pasture horses get a bale set out that they have full access to all the time. They self regulate pretty well and alternate between eating the hay and grazing on the grass. Only my customer's horses really get their feed intake monitored by getting fed twice a day.
