How much does it cost to produce one bale of hay?
The cost to produce one bale of hay will vary greatly from farm to farm. It all comes down to the price of the seed, the fertilizers used, the cost of the equipment, the amount of irrigation that may be needed and the cost of the labor to name just a few variances. Typically hay farms mass produce their hay and split the total amount of overhead per bale to get an average price. So if producing just one bale then it will cost you however much all of your overhead will be to grow it.
