I just got 16 round bales of prairie hay for $35 a bale if I can go get it, $40 if he has to bring it over. I'll probably go get it I think he said they were around 1500 lbs each.
I paid $50 a bale last year but we were coming out of a national hay shortage year.

last year we were paying $8/bale, this year we're getting our hay from a friend who bales it herself. No delivery or stacking fee, and it's $3.50/bale. Less for the wet stuff. We get it all the day it's baled, so even the wet stuff is still good to toss out in the field.

Just a tip, but when we used to put up our own hay and it wasn't cured yet, we sprinkled salt between the bales. For one it helps dry them out, and also it keeps it from heating up and catching on fire.

I'm not sure what part of Michigan RusticWildFire is from....but in central Michigan (Jackson area) the price of hay seems to be $3 to $5 per square bale of grassy/timothy/alfalfa mix 1st and 2nd cutting hay. I don't know what it was a year ago as I am a new user of it (which is why I've priced it out so much).
