10.50 a bale is crazy! Even at 15/bale there is nothing in it.Seen some top quality round bale haylage make £10.50 at a sale the other day...
Iv bought some grade 1 silage next door for £15/ bale and been offered 200 bales 3 miles away at £15/ bale ( offered them £12/ bale collected but just not worth anymore when you take £3/ bale to haul it back!! )
Saw some round bale wheat/ barley straw get to £21/ bale at auction.... withdrawn!!!!
No grass around here at all at the mo...
Straw will be £130/ ton down here by harvest....

Got another 50 220kg bales going out to a racing yard this morning, £47/each, same as the last 3 years really.Bloody good job to.
Perhaps we shall see the demise of third parties, who upset the status quo on a local basis, by paying over the odds for relatively worthless materials which they have no personal use for, other than to try and screw the end user in order to meet the payments on kit they have aquired to augment their manhoods.
There is plenty left to shave off of that to cover cost price of production by an end user.
Totally agree if you cost it fully ( as you should do ) then i cant see how anyone can make reasonable quality forage for less then £14/15 bale..We cost our haylage at £18/bale to make, it can be made cheaper yes but I very much doubt if anyone could get cost below £14
