    Alfalfa square bales are around 2.00-3.50$ per bale here. Big round bales are going for 30$, though I don't pay as close attention to round bale costs. This is hay I got for my goats, not horses, goats are very picky about hay.

    North Eastern, Ohio is $2.50 - $3.50 for square bales. $30 and up for rounds. The quality isn't the best this year because of all of the rain. A lot more first cutting available than second cutting. And the first cutting seems to have been cut later than it should have.
    I expect that prices will start dropping pretty soon because of the warmer winter the livestock wasn't burning through it as fast. I would still like to find some good second cut to last me through spring.
    I couldn't afford to feed horses at Fla and Ca prices. How do you guys do it?
