    About right for that size of bale. If you can find the 7 cu ft compressed bales at a lumber yard or feed/ranch store, you likely will do a better. We pay $7.50 for a 7 cu ft bale.

    I pay $4.99 for 2.0Cu ft, sometimes it's on sale for $4.49. So, that sounds like a bargain to me.

    Quote:$4.99 here for that size.

    Same here in Chattanooga, at Stockdale's. Sometimes they sell them for $4.50. Ace Hardware here is $7.99 for that size, I forget what TSC cost is, but if I don't remember it's because it was too high and I haven't purchased there.
