The other day we were discussing the price of hay here in Kingman and nearby . Well , something must have happened . Maybe fuel prices . 2 days ago I went into town and passed the "Gas and Gag" . Local store ,gas , propane , feed , hay etc. .The price has gone up to $13.99 a bale .That's a $5 increase in 6 months . That's a 125 or so pound bale . Anyone else seeing a spike in prices ?

It does seem like the Western states end up paying a LOT for hay every year. All that shipping expense, I suppose. Fuel did go up a LOT (diesel has been hovering around $4.00+ a gallon for a while now).

that's a LOT of money for hay. :( I'd look for it to go down with the new crop of hay being done in a month in the southern states, but not a lot because of the fuel prices atm.

Here in SE Tx I can get Coastal Hay for about 8.50 for a square bale. There are places more expensive, but this is the local feed store down the road. I like to spend my money there, so hopefully she will stay in business.
