I've been noticing that the past few years the horse people and small/startup cattle operations are competitively increasing the small acreage pasture rents (logical result of higher hay prices). It's gotten to where the price for pasture is about equal to the price to rent ground for haying around here (on the smaller less desirable fields).
I was wondering if this is happening in other areas as well (south central Montana here)

It has been that way in this area for awhile. Good grass is good grass, IMHO a pasture with good grass, water and fence is a good commodity. I wouldn't say that small operators are driving the cost up, but land speculation, drought and urban sprawl are.

I totally agree

Good point. I didn't mean to say that I'm blaming the small operator (that's what I am) just that due to the causes you state they happen to be the ones paying the higher prices to compete for these smaller parcels.
I agree that grass is grass and that's what's leveling the prices between pasture and hay ground.

I see on my nearby Craigslist ads, several offering to pay for rent of small hay/ pasture plots, any size, can be a little wet (common reason for small grassy spots here). So the demand is out there, didnt see that a few years ago.

Common to hay the road ditches here, always been that way, county road ditches are pretty well engineered around here, and they have 60 to 100 foot to center deals here pretty easy to hay. So this sort of hay used to be cheap around here, I hear its gone up the past 2 years.

I have been paying the same price for pasture and hay ground rent, south east Michigan. Around here is is not the small horse owner but the large subsidized grain farmers that are the biggest threat to me.
