Re: [RC] feed prices...the rest of the story :) - Cindy Collins

Yes, sometimes we all need to stop and look at the "half full" glass. I can still buy gorgeous hay at $150 a ton (when I was paying $80 a ton just a couple of years ago) and I am more than happy to pay for it. Do I whine sometimes... sure...that's normal. However, one does need to get a grip occasionally and realize that most of the world thinks anyone who owns a horse is incredibly wealthy. CC

That is so true, and especially in agriculture. We've been blessed in this country with abundance in good land, resulting in inexpensive food, inexpensive agricultural products overall. That will not always be, with increased pressure on the available, arable land, with less irrigation water in the west, and more variable weather patterns. And the ever-present energy demands.

It is amazing to me that hay, good grass hay, and grass/alfalfa hay, is still available to me at $4.50 and $5.00 a bale. That is such a great deal, all things considered, and I'm thankful.
