HAY HAY HAY
The cost of hay here in California is very expensive. All year we have been paying between $15.00 to $18.00 per bale of alfalfa.
Each truck and trailer load costs, as of now, approximately $8,500.00, which will last about 8 weeks.
We are continuing our fund raising efforts over the winter months, as the loads of alfalfa will increase in price.
Please help by donating towards our hay fund.
