hay prices

Postby farmguy » Thu Sep 06, 2018 8:40 pm

I am asking for a neighbor. He was wondering what nice alfalfa grass hay was selling for in different areas. He specifically mentioned 800 lb bales. Also per ton price. If you can mention your general area and prices post it here. I am not sure what he plans but I said I would post here. We have had a pretty good hay year here in Minnesota. Thanks farmguy

Alfalfa here is running $6-$8 for small square bales. 50 -60 lbs. Don't know about big bales or by the ton but I will have to check around.

Lucerne hay (alfalfa) here is over $600/ton, the freight to get it to you might be the deal breaker though.

Round here that will barely pay the cut, rake and baling.

900 lb bale @ 25-$30 = 56-$67 ton
