haha I'm in eastern Canada. We are lucky, hay prices are high for us but not nearly as high as other places. I still remember 10 years ago when we were getting squares for $2 a bale *sigh* We're around $5.50 shipped. Our hay is nothing to get excited over but its not horrible either. The problem is, we will get in 500 bales and only 300 will be useable and 200 of that 300 needs to be watered. Our hay has been SUPER dusty and mouldy because its been to wet for it to dry out before its baled then gets stored and turns to carp. We have had a lot of barn fires because of this.
