Not to be pessimistic, but it’s like that over here as well (Serbia, Europe). Out small bales have gone from 120 local currency in October 2020 to 300 now. We also had a drought last summer so that wasn’t helpful either…

1.5$ to 3.8$ for approx. 45 pounds -but I don’t know if it has a type - it’s just all sorts of mixed grass. That’s 250% in a year and a half.

@Zimalia22 I don’t think most people would blame the growers. If anything we are mostly commiserating and hoping you guys stay in business. At least I am.

Locally most small time farmers had to get their cows processed for meat and stopped keeping them because it was costing them more to keep them than what they could sell them/the produce for. It’s only big corporate farms that are still in business. I think that has happened a long time ago in the western countries but over here a lot of people were keeping 10 or 15 head of cattle on their family farm up until two years ago. Not any more, unfortunately.
