Very poor quality, cut late

11/18/2007 2:00:19 PM

It seems many producers are hoarding to inflate prices. We are planting our own for next year.

11/18/2007 1:28:06 PM

11/16/2007 11:16:16 PM

11/16/2007 8:33:54 PM

I do not see a shortage where I am

11/16/2007 7:23:37 PM

Purchasing 900 pound square bales instead of small, more economical.

11/16/2007 7:21:55 PM

Haveing a very hard time finding good hay this year.

11/16/2007 6:30:22 PM

Buying compressed bales not good enough for export

11/16/2007 5:59:40 PM

I bought fairly early on which kept my costs more reasonable.

11/16/2007 5:23:56 PM

not healthy green hay

11/16/2007 4:26:44 PM

Rough - harder to find, poorer quality, more expensive. Selling horses.

11/16/2007 4:08:59 PM

11/16/2007 3:31:48 PM

11/16/2007 11:33:23 AM

Good. I get hay from a farmer who specializes in horse hay; he makes sure regulars have hay!

11/16/2007 10:55:47 AM

Hay has been sketchy at best. I am switching to pellet feed.

11/16/2007 10:51:07 AM

$8/35lb square bale. Hay was extremely scarce in the fall and winter months. I fed cattle grade.

11/16/2007 9:40:37 AM

our hay supply this year has been great. The farmers had three cuttings in most of the area

11/16/2007 9:29:57 AM

The hay price has fluctuated from $5 to $6; quality: bad in lt summer, better in early fall grassy

11/16/2007 9:20:24 AM

I ordered 200 bales of Alicia Bermuda and 200 bales of Bahai Grass hay for my 4 TWH.

11/16/2007 9:11:46 AM

My crop was 1/5 of a normal year. With everyone else having the same prob, hay is a BIG issue.

11/16/2007 9:09:40 AM

Good hay, for that matter any feed quality is in short supply in central Minnesota.

11/16/2007 8:42:55 AM

11/16/2007 7:54:27 AM

hay is in short supply. I will probably run out before spring

11/16/2007 7:53:09 AM

It is not too bad although the coast for me has almost doubled.

11/16/2007 7:21:52 AM

I'm in England and there has been flooding all year. Hay is late hay and not as nutritiou!

11/16/2007 2:36:03 AM

11/15/2007 3:29:45 PM

I'm loyal to my hay provider (20+years) so he doesn't take advantage of me when prices skyrocket.

11/15/2007 3:25:47 PM

11/15/2007 12:00:24 AM

11/14/2007 7:57:18 PM

11/14/2007 7:07:48 PM

Got lucky and got a few months supply out of the field from a local, but will need to find more soon

11/14/2007 11:09:55 AM

Using a large round bale saves wear on worn pasture and decreases usage of the costly square bales.

Iffy and often poor quality

11/13/2007 3:57:37 PM

No problem getting 1st or 2nd cut... nice soft orchard grass "candy" hay... best I've seen in years.

11/13/2007 3:51:01 PM

Quality Local Grass Hay no longer cheap! Buying from safe source makes it worth the price!

11/13/2007 3:51:01 PM

I got mine early, rather than having to purchase throughout the winter, what a relief!

11/13/2007 3:50:51 PM
