If you look in the right parts of East TX there are folks with rounds that is around 2 yrs old for $10 or so. But it’s nothing special. Probably has thorny stuff in some.

60 a bale right now is normal but that 95.00 caught me off guard. Probably this fall it will be over 95.00. I doubt if too many will get a second cutting. I hate to see it get this way. Cattle gonna get real cheap.

Only farmers and ranchers depend on mother nature to make a living. Been doing it for nearly 50 years but still love it.

I’ve seen $65 5x5 3 months ago

In 10’-11’ I payed $74-$90 for $&@% the size of sleeping bags and the beer cans and styrofoam cup were the most nutritional part.

Funny/sad when the rest of the world... even Houston is in need “please send help... it’s a tax write off” but when we are burnt up they break it off in your.....

Going for 80.00 a bale now. Coastal. Fixing to cut again by the end of the month. Probably won't be going for this price again till fall. We got some decent rains past month but some county's out west of us didn't get jack.

All of those price gougers will be squalling next year when the price of beef goes up because everyone sold the herd this year. You boy's save some money from your hay sales, next year's ribeyes will probably come at a premium.

Sounds like you had a buddy!
Maybe he's waiting to get paid after trying to be a hay broker!
Just Kidding.
