Is it a local thing or much the same elsewhere? Around here in southwest PA hay isn't moving. I'm sitting on 8000 squares and 100 rounds and winter is past half over. Some old customers have died off, others sold their herd or flock. Haven't advertised hard but might have to or just cut back and go to tractor shows. We need tractors that eat hay.

In my area it was a little dry last summer. I always sold some hay to a dairy farm starting in late February. This year he called early December. I could of sold him over a 150 big bales if I could of found some.

Here in N Texas rounds are EVERYWHERE. I can drive 5 miles down the road and see 3-4 places selling them, and I'm not even looking. Even TSC has probably 10 for sale out front. I dont know much anyone wants or if they're actually moving them, but there doesnt *seem* to be a shortage around here.

We are short on hay here in Indiana, with the colder than normal winter. Everyone I know that sells it is out.

I sold out a month ago. We had a very wet summer and it was hard to put up good hay. I could've sold a lot more if I had it. Mine were all small squares. There are lots of late September round bales to be had. I'm in NNY. Most of my hay went to New Hampshire.

Sold all of our hay in late December.

Long time customer bought all the Coastal Bermuda round bales before the first cutting.

Sold a lot of Pensacola/Tifton 9 Bahiagrass bales to other long time customers.

Sold last 90 bales to a new customer in December.

Normally all the round bales are sold within about 2 weeks of cutting.

Almost forgot to mention that our farm is in NE Texas.

My last eight tons of small squares left this week here in NW Oregon. Cheap stuff went for 140/ton; the best sold for 180/ton. Typically I have some in the barn through April. I can clean it out early this year and make some repairs/improvements before we start again in May.

Lots of hay on the market here in Ontario , most of it is junk . Too much rain last summer, made for poor conditions for curing hay for dry bales. Lots of hay was baled tough , or after being rained on.

Here in S.E. Ohio everybody that can get a tractor and baler put hay up last summer and now have mixed grass hay for sale, some for 2.00 a bale. I didn't bale as much squares as I usually do but I'v sold all of mine and I'm down to about 10-15 4x4 rounds in the building that I want to sell. The rest is for my horses. Those that sell for 2.00 have never and probably won't put any fert or lime on those fields and are the ones that think mixed grass includes weeds and briars. They usually go out of business in a year or two when people won't buy their hay. Keith

I have one buyer that takes all my good hay out to Massachusetts (I'm in Central NY). I've sent out 5 semi loads so far - there's one left in the barn, but the driveway is so icy, we can't get the truck backed up it.
The weather wasn't great in June and July for first cutting, but a lot of nice second cutting was made in September and October
