Can anyone give me any idea what small square bales are selling for this year, thanks

28th July 2011, 09:11 PM
Well I'm going to be paying £2 off the field and the rest I can't store will cost me £3.
However the farmer has put up his prices to everyone else and he's selling for £4 per bale off the field etc
There is an advert in our village shop for new hay at £6 per bale too!

Sheila would your person let me buy it at £4?? Or do you know anyone selling big bales apart from Skylark?

At the moment tack shops around here are charging £6.50 a bale, but this is still for last years hay.

This year im paying £4.50 per small bale, ive brought all i need to last me the whole year, as the price down here seems to go up as the year goes on!

Getting expensive! Am i right in thinking there are 10 small bales in a round bale?

29th July 2011, 09:19 AM
I cant believe how expensive hay can be..I have about 80 bales spare that im going to sell to the girl whos horse is kept here i was thinking £3 a bale.

Im so glad we are now managing to make our own hay as I really dont think I could afford some of those prices.

Cheapest round us, straight off the field is £6 , £7 from a feed merchant and if you want it delivered you're looking at over £8!!

29th July 2011, 12:17 PM
I'm trying out some big rectangle bales (5ft x 3ft x 3ft) which are £40 per bale. Hoping it will work out cheaper and I don't want haylage this year as it turns faster than I get through it! Small bales of haylage works out too expensive.

Round here the feed merchant hay is £5.50. Private sales around £4-£5.
But we found someone who is going to sell it to us for £3 :D :D Getting as much we can fit in 2 trips with the horsebox to completely fill up our small hay barn so probably just over 50 bales. That will only feed Rowan and Lola for the whole winter and Dancer get's fed haylage which is around £6 for a tiny bale.

Boyfriend cuts and bales hay I think it's about £2.50 off the field and it's really lovely hay, probably a bit more if you want it delivered but not sure on the price.

I have just got some lovely hay here in Staffs for £3.25 a bale.

30th July 2011, 08:32 PM
Gosh most of them are really cheap compared to down south, at our livery its £7 a rectangular bale, and all the tack shops are the same:(

30th July 2011, 09:59 PM

I have just paid £3 per bale for my last lot. And my next lot is looking to be £2.50 per bale if I buy it in bulk. :)
