Moving to Arizona
Hello, my family and i are nost likely moving to arizona in the pheonix , tuscon area, and i want to know a good hay supply, thats not to crazy expensive, we have two horses. I know hay here on the east coast is cheaper, but we dont want to pay an arm and a leg.
In Tucson right now, an 80 lb sack of alfalfa-bermuda mix pellets runs $18.50+. Last week, 80 lb bales of bermuda hay ran me $18. Its been that way for most of the last 2 years. IIRC, it hit $20/bale last winter. Never dropped much during the summer because of gas prices and the drought in the midwest.
A few years ago, it ran around $10-12/bale. You can get better prices if you buy by the semi-load, but not by much. Not unless you know someone farming hay locally.
are u talking about square bales for 18? out here in Virginia we pay 4 bucks for orchard mix and at the most 13 for the nice stuff
I'm talking about a bale that weighs 80-90 pounds.
True, thats not a bad price, do u have a specific hay source? or do u just get whats availible when its availible?
I don't have a storage shed, so I get what is available every few weeks.
Welcome to the forum and good luck with the move
To be honest (Tucson, here), my barn makes annual/biannual trips to California to get good hay. I know a few people who do that here.
