I know that due to drought in much of the country, hay can be very hard to find in some areas. And when you do find it, it can be expensive. Most of the feed stores in my area are having a really hard time finding any kind of hay. I went in one feed store today and they were proud to have 3 kinds of hay: Alfalfa: $8.50 bale Alfalfa/Brome: $8.00 Coastal: $7.50 The alfalfa looked really good. I don't know where they got it, but they are getting another load of alfalfa next week from Iowa. They told me they should have a steady supply for at least several more weeks (hmmm, I'm wondering about after that?). I didn't see the Alfalfa/Brome, but the coastal looked pretty bad. But I guess if you gotta have it, you gotta have it. It's so dry here there is little grazing for cattle (most cattle have gone to the sale barn because there is nothing to graze them on). How is your area doing, in relation to hay, grazing, and drought? Is hay easy or hard to find? Is it expensive?
