Price of Hay Hits New Record

A bale of alfalfa-grass mix was $36 today, 20 bales minimum, up from $30 per bale on June 4, a 20% increase in just four weeks.  The single-bale price was $37.

The price was $19 per bale a year ago.

The average horse would need five bales per month, which works out to $180 per AUM.

The $1,000 adoption incentive would keep your mustang fed for five to six months.

The price of forage to the public-lands ranchers has not changed in the past year, $1.35 per AUM.

Better to cram more wild horses into the feedlots and stick the taxpayers with the bill.
