Similarly, certain classes of hay customers will never pay premium prices for hay as a general rule - Walking horses, cow/calf operations, stockers, backyard horse owners, goats, donkeys, trail rides.
High hay prices are also 90% about service and package, and 10% about quality. You cannot sell a $10,000 bull out of a pasture with briars and thistle, behind single strand electric fence with a frame score of 3, at 9pm with no lights but a flashlight to look at him.

Glad my customer remembered the times that he called at 5 PM with cattle just bought and would be arriving at midnight and he needed hay by 8 AM.
What burns me now is people low balling the price to my yr rd customers so they can move their hay from the directly from field.Than I'll get to deal with snow,ice,mud and rd postings the rest of the yr.

Looks like another way to fleece farmers. When you are so ignorant as to not know how to spell Bale, you are not smart enough to set up a website to sell my hay. Please take this spam off this list. There are already lots of hay list out there!
you took the words out of my mouth.

biggest concern is the high fertilizer prices. We can't afford to buy The problem is there is no alternative for commercial potash. Comments?
I can’t speak from experience or knowledge of it, but a local hog farmer that my brother does work on his equipment will argue that hog manure has potash in it. He states that he has been told there is not, but states that his test comes back with a higher reading and never uses commercial fertilizer. John

There are alternatives to high prices commercial fertilizers for those of use who can not use manures. The Growers Mineral Solution people have a great program centered around returning the calcium to the soil that has been depleted over the years (low calcium is not the case in all parts of the country but is the case in many parts), and using solution fertilizers. I have had great success with these methods, and the cost are substantially less after the first year where you have to catch up the calcium level in your soils. The basic idea is get the soil healthy, and it will take care of the plants.

So, can we see that please? That would have meaning.
If I am being dense and there is a "standard" weight that has been set by some organistion and is recognised across the breadth and depth of the hay producing market could somebody tell me so I can take the knot out of my face please?
