Glad I'm not down there.
Getting £110t or £30 a 4x4 round bale for my hay up here this week.
Decent hay up to £40 per bale delivered here. Straw about £100/t barley. Dairy silage about £40/t. Supplies are tight locally but not as tight as many had predicted.

Just got a delivery of wheat straw in the larger six string bale size haulier picked it up from Lincolnshire this morning and dropped it with us this afternoon for £78/t opened a bale up tonight n its real good stuff for bedding, problem with it is getting it to the right place before it starts spreading itself :facepalm:
lovely smelling, quite fine meadow hay with a nice bit of colour. £110 a ton or £24 a bale delivered for four stringers. 100 bale load 22 tons.

Silage being carted about right left centre. Heard one farmer say he had spent £20k buying extra silage he wouldn't normally be buying
