Anyone buying maze/milo stalks in the field to bale? If so, what are you paying the farmer?

I'm working to lock down a couple hundred acres and just seeing what others are doing on price. I'll be rolling them in 4X bales, probably 4x5.5 to 4x6.

There are some guys that buy straw and bale large squares every year... this year they were paying the farm $8 per bale.

Any thoughts and information will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Here I am paying a little over 8 dollars a bale for 5x6 bales of corn stover out of the field.

So that is $8 per bale and you bale it, right?

That is correct. About 1100 lb dry bales.
