Hay is definitely high in this area this year. From what I’ve seen $50 will get you some pretty sorry hay and $85-90 will get top quality hay. If you’re not worried about your pastures and feeding in rings just go with the cheaper hay and feed commodity mix for protien. The real kicker is that killer cows are only bring 25 cents so your screwed either way.

It would pay pretty quick to haul to Crockett at those prices. Kill cows still @ .50 to.60 slaughter bulls .68 to .75.

You gotta do what you gotta do, but dang those are high prices for hay. I buy the best and biggest rolls of hay around here for $60 a roll. The guy that won the Georgia hay contest sells hay a little cheaper yet. I'd be getting the hay tested before I bought. LA and MS is loaded down with hay if you have a good trailer.
