    I'm in Alberta, Canada. We get a gorgeous alfalfa/timothy mix that is approximately 60% alfalfa. The square bales are over 60+ lbs. each and we pay $7 per bale, which also includes delivery and stacking. I'd have to go out and weight them. They are ridiculously heavy, but have no excess moisture, mold or dust.

    $18.99 for ~100 lb bale of 50/50 alfalfa/grass. Same price for 80/20 alf/grass, alfalfa, or orchard grass. Some places have similar hay at $17.50ish, but the bales aren't as big. Maybe a little cheaper for mountain grass or oat hay (it's just hard to find). Damn near impossible to find timothy, and you'll usually pay $20+ for a nice bale. I'm in way northern CA, about 2 hours from the OR border. None of these prices include delivery.

    $18.99 for Orchard/ Alf. $21.99 for Orchard. $16.99 for alfalfa. Bales are approx 100-110lbs.

    I never pay less than $20 a bag for the various grains I feed.

    DD--Have you tried Walmart? I'm on N. Ca, too. I don't buy hay, but I find I can buy the same grain at Walmart for 4 to $5 cheaper than the feed store. I pay $14 to $15 for a 40 lb. sack of grain there, and $18 for 25 lbs of Calf Manna.

    My sister is in Placerville, and I stop by the feed store off the freeway by the Honda sign near Shingle Springs when I go there, and it's pretty well priced, too.

    Way too much!

    Anywhere from $18-24 for a regular 60-70-ish lb 2-wire bale of timothy, T/A, or O/A.

    $36 for a 125-ish lb 3-wire bale of orchard.

    I'm in Miami.

    Feed store just stopped carrying the Timothy mix which was $19.50 for just a two string bale.

    What she said, I'm only an hour north!

    I work at a pet store, and I'm tired of people complaining about $50-$60 every 2-3 MONTHS! Try my horse going through two bales a WEEK!

    I am in SW Colorado. $10 for a 70# bale of grass/alfalfa mix stacked and delivered. A 900-1000# round bale of mostly grass hay is $145 to $225 delivered. Prices went up a lot last summer due to extreme drought. I am expecting even higher this year as the snow pack is about 50% of normal in my area and we are out of reserve water.

    I paid $285 for 4x4x8 squares of orchard grass weighing 1500 pounds ($380/ton).

    I paid $22 per 100 lb bale of grass/alfalfa mix ($440/ton).

    Small squares weighing 60 pounds are selling for $13-$14.

    None of these prices include delivery.

    I worked at that feed store for three years, just quit on Sunday Yes I agree, good prices though! I don't think WalMart carries what I feed (Purina, Nutrena, Star Milling). I haven't been to the local WalMart in a while, but I remember them not having too much of a selection. I will check it out though
