In your neck of the woods, what is a large round bale of hay worth these days?
Most folks get around 12-16 dollars. We live in Western N.C.,and my dad- in -law told me this when I asked him about his roundbailer. Marty.
About the same here. Prices may change as we see the effects of drought. Right now, we've put up some good hay this season.
$16-24 a bale depending on size & quality.
Up to $60-75 a bale for top notch dairy alfalfa. But that is different than what you are asking about?
I'd rather buy hay by the ton than by the bale. When I have surplus hay, I sell it all by the ton.
Here in SE MN, hay yields have been reasonably good, so prices down somewhat. Lots of second cutting got some rain on it, so those bales are bringing less as well.
For a 5' by 6' big round bale weighing 1500 lbs., they've been going from $22.50 to $60 a bale, but most selling between $35-$45/ bale.
Not sure about the exact size or weight but rounds go for average of $50 here in Baldwin. Not sure about surrounding counties. I only wish we could get it for $16 each. We pay $11 for square alfalfa and $5 for bahaia (sp?) hay.
A 5' X 6' roll of coastal bermuda is about $35-$40 around here. Small square bales go for $3.00-$4.00.
Here Are About The Same As Tyusclan.
about 14 bucks a large round bail bermuda
Good Coastal Bermuda in a heavy round bale is $25-$35. here in central Texas. Most folks that raise cattle also raise hay, I don't though. That's what I pay to have it delivered.
$25-30 in northeastern MI
Round bales come in different sizes. You need to know the weight of the bale before comparing. Current price is about $45 per ton here. In order to sell we have to take at least two bales into town to be weighed as a sample of weight. Our bales are usually 1500 pounds.
I paid $25 each for 1600 pound bales of grass hay delivered. I also get 600 pound grass bales delivered for $10 each
They don't offer them by weight here, just by size. A 4 x 5 round bale of Coastal Bermuda or Timothy runs $20-$25. You've got to go for a looonnnnggg drive to find something else...and I'm not seeing any Timothy offered this year at all!
