No luck on the 2009...you probably seen this but maybe you can adjust a bit and use the 2007-2008. I also attached the Iowa 2009 and Kansas 2008 for a comparison. Hope it is helpful.

Hi. Where you located at? Balling rates are depending on who does it most of the time. What size? Net wrap or not? How much work are you going to do? I paid a guy to make some round bales for me the last 2-3 yrs. Cheapest and hardest working guy I ever met. Charged $18.00 for a 4x5 twine wrap bale last year . He's very busy and hard to get to come when you want it done. But well worth it. I cut some of it that he baled last year and he only charged me $8.00 for raking and baling those. I heard of several cutters charging $30.00 for bigger (5x5) net wrap bales. Some of the cost depends on the price of fuel at the time.

Talked to the guy that did the baling for me last year this weekend. He bought a new baler this year and said his 4x5 bales are a couple hundred pounds heavier than they where last year. Anyway he's charging $17.00 to make them this year. That's cutting, raking and baling.

This is one of the cheapest guys around. I like his prices and he's a hard worker. Does you right when he works for you. Just hard to get on his schedule. He also will come and charge for seperate tasks. But I usually just have him do it all. Not alot of acid used around here that I know of. I,m sure there is in NW Okla. Alot more alfalfa grown up there.

We are located in Texas and we get $22 to cut, rake and bale but ours are about 5 1/2 ft tall and if we do everything we have a 2 bale per acre minimum.
Our prices are:
Mowing $14/acre for mowing with our mower conditioner and laying it flat
Raking $6/acre
Tedding $5/acre
Baling $8-10 bale depending on how far we go and the amount of hay that it makes.

I guess i better hire some you other post to do my hay ? where we are located everyone charges about the same price, wow you guys seem way too cheap ? the cheapest swathing i know about was 12.00 per acre , cheapest I ever do is 17.00 per acre. most all our haying is irrigated maybe that is why price differnce ? some dryland but not too much . During the season I have no problem keeping 2 18foot rigs blowin smoke cutting circles . Have a safe and prosperous year ! watch out for those rattlesnakes too.......

I guess I keep it simple. Here in the Willamette Valley in Oreogn I've been changing 64.00 per ton of hay. I put up square bales that average 60 to 65 lbs. The 64.00 per ton is to cut-rake and bale. In apply fertilizer I charge 15 per acre plus the product. Each year I end up not getting to some people's field's. If possible I could do twice the acreage but I'm a one man operation. No one has ever complained about price. Maybe I'm to cheap?

In the Central Oregon area (Redmond). Rates are around $95/acre cut, rake, and bale small bales. Stacking is around .50/bale.

Personally

.50/bale to stack on the field

.60/bale over the road less than 1 mile

.75/bale 1-5 miles

Over that we haul it by hand 35/ton in the local area stacked and unstacked
I like flat rates because the harder I work the more I make per hour and at my age most don’t think I am willing to work because of past experiences of others so they are leery of hourly rates…

What are others charging to stack small bales? Does anyone haul hay where it must be done by hand due to areas not big enough for equipment to be feasible, if so for how much?

we do rounds samall squares and big squares(3x3) 15 to cut 15 for rounds 14 for big squares and 1 dollar for small squares ( we bale them and leave). We did however stumble across a bale band it this winter and we figure next year we will need a extra dollar to pull it. the last time we had any small squares hauled they charged us .75 thats been a couple years i would imagine now( if you could find anyone) it would be close to a 1 dollar just to get them hauled in our area. How much extra do others charge for a accumalater or bale band it?
