Just saw and add on Craig's list for hay. 4X5 round bale of hay listed for $75 each. That is almost twice what hay was last years here in Missouri but with the lack of rain the hay crop has also been way down. I only have around 25 big round done and in the barn so far this year. But at least that should be enough to get my by this winter and maybe have a few left over. I know I will not be selling any till late winter if I sell any at all. Most years my hay barn would be move then half full but not this year or the year before

Not in my area there were some 4 X 4 bales on CL the other day for $15 if the buyer would get them while they were still in the field.Hay has been pretty heavy so far.

>This infuriates me to no end, my hay sells for thirty a bale good times and bad. What are these money grubbing, greedy dirty dogs thinking? If everyone sells their cows who will buy hay from them in the
future? This happened a few years back and hay sales were just coming back strong. Here hay is poor this year mostly weeds these monkeys are selling. Hope they enjoy the profits

Now the hay price has gone up from the $75 to $100. Been a bad hay years but still people taking advantage of that should be hung

So if corn goes to $7.00 a bushel, should we hang the corn growers too? Get real !!

I am being real. Checked at the local place I buy hay if/when I need it. $44 per 4X5 bale. So the scalpers are asking more then twice going rate

Do you pay extra for hay when it gets cheap or pay market price? Supply and demand.

Sell a 4X5 bale for $100 is well over priced when one can buy the same size bae for $44. But some like to take advantage of others when they can.

Majority of time hay is under sold. So all those corn growers should sell the corn for $3 a bushel when corn is $7? Hay should always be sold for the highest you can get, it's a tough way to make a living.

Exactly. I never had one person offer me a little more when I was struggling to get $2 out of it. I try to be fair, but when yields are half what they normally are, I'm not going to go in the red so someone can happily feed their little fur babies.

No if someone pays $100 for something they can buy for $44 then the buyer is just being plain stupid,I see over priced things for sale all the time if I'm dumb enough to
buy its sure not the seller's fault.

Exactly conditions change,supply changes, lots of variables,what something sold for last year or even last week really can no effect on current prices.See that at the hay auction
many times.

I know around me, the hay crop is a lot thinner due to some late frosts we experienced. I have heard some talk that hay is going to be hard to find this year. I have sold hay for the last 13 years and have tried to stay in the "average going price" for my area. For me, I wont price gouge. most of my customers have been coming to me since I started selling hay. I value their long time repeat business and when I have had to raise my price it has only been to cover increased input costs, my customers haven't complained. the way I see it, why raise your price double one season and run off your good repeat customers? I just hope I have enough to be able to cover what my regular customers usually buy. just my two cents.
