I have been getting calls today regarding hay prices. It is early on in the hay sales season for new crop so only a little information is available. New crop grass hay that has not been rained on, has very few heads and is in small square bales will command a premium price. Those small square bales will sell to the horse industry and are currently priced at up to $6 per bale or $200 per ton. Large round bales are now priced in the range of $120-140 per ton. Remember that any defect in the hay, mold, heads, rain etc. will mean the price should be discounted.
