    Default Is the price of Horsehage going up??

    We haven't started feeding yet as we've still got a lot of grass we're strip grazing and haven't been to buy as Horsehage as we have 2 bags left over from last winter but I'm worried that the prices are going to go up as normal haylege and hay starts to run out.....should I go out and stock up now? Anyone know what kind of price it is ATM.

    Hay and haylage near me has not gone up. Still 2.50 on average for hay and 6.50 for haylege.
    I do think it pays to shop around.
    I have a secret old farmer i buy from where i get a very good deal. There are still some outhere if you look hard

    We only feed horsehage now after mould and weed problems with hay and haylege.
    Sounds like you have a good thing going with your 'secret farmer'

    My local supplier has quoted me 6.50 a bale and that is on bulk!

    Luckily I have managed to find a superb larger bale alternative so have saved 50% on my forage bill this year!

    I used to use about 5 bales a week per horse!
