No Relief in Hay Prices

One bale of alfalfa-grass mix cost $36 today, 20 bales minimum, the same as January.

The same bale cost $19 in July of 2021.

The average horse would need around five bales per month, putting the cost of feed at $180 per AUM.

Ranchers pay $1.35 per AUM to graze livestock on America’s public lands, including areas designated for wild horses.

That’s one reason why there are 62,000 such animals in off-range holding.

Let the taxpayers foot the bill.
