Down here in Texas due to lack of normal rainfall I've seen small sqs of grass hay priced @ $10-$13 & rds from $75 in field to $150+ in feed store. Some custom balers sold 4X5+ rd bales of Corn stalks for $50-$60.
Around here IL/WI Stateline $5-$6 small squares. Just to get rid of mine, $3.50 a bale for first cutting mid August grass. Heck I can't even give away some of it for bedding. Next year though I hope to have better quality hay, then it will be $5 or more a bale. Damned weeds are a PITA this year.
