The incredible increases in fuel prices have definitely worked their way into the hay price structure, and now the drought in the midwest and South has ranchers slaughtering cattle early and selling good horses for less than the price of a bale. Some friends of ours in TX are reporting $14/square, and with one of them feeding 30 horses I know she’s hurting.
How much is good-quality hay going for in your area? I priced the poll by the “small square,” but if you buy rounds you probably know the going rate for squares also.
Feel free to leave a comment about where you are geographically as well, and what you’re doing to manage.<a href="https://polldaddy.com/p/5592375" target="_blank">Take Our Poll</a>
