Price of Hay Still Going Up

On July 3, the price was $19 per bale for 20 bales or more.  Today, the price was $25 per bale, a 32% increase in six months.

The average horse would consume around five bales per month, putting the cost of feeding him at $125 per AUM.

Adopters will spend $1,500 on feed before they receive the second half of the $1,000 incentive, leaving them with a $500 deficit.

The price to graze livestock on public lands is $1.35 per AUM.  The fee for the 2022 season should be announced in a few weeks.
