I dunno. 3K of squares in my area would only be about $6-7K if you had nice stuff and delivered it. Hard for me to wrap my head around the investment. I'd love to, please understand that, but the money isn't there. I'm doing about half of what the OP is with a NH 68. Had to rebuild it, but I don't have $500.00 in it. No insult intended to anyone, just trying to understand how other folks look at things.

Now, one of those rotary rakes...that I could almost justify- used of course.

Hey Bret, please let us know where you live. If you are only getting $2.30 a bale for nice stuff and you have to deliver it for that price to boot, I am willing to buy as many bales as you can sell. Right now in the eastern corn belt you can consider yourself very lucky indeed if you can buy a bale of 'nice stuff" for less than $5.00, out of the mow, no delivery. Actually, if the best you can do is $2.30 delivered, I have a hard time believing you can make any money haying even if someone GAVE you your hay equipment.

St Lawrence Co NY. My math may have been off a little, but you can get bales delivered, locally, under $3.00 each. I've seen them at $2.50. Myself, I couldn't get $15.00 for a 1K round last year. This year they're running around $26.00 presently. Come on up, people have hay. The trucking will kill you.

Wow Brett St Lawrence County NY. What a depressed area! Friends bought a farm up there probably around twelve years ago. We went to visit them about 8 years ago and we couldn't believe how bad it was, and this was when the rest of the country was booming! It seemed that probably a third of the homes were vacant in Fowler. They said that after the mines shut down many people could not pay their mortgages, and no one was buying so many people just walked away from their places. Another friend tried farming in Messina for a few years but he moved back here about 15 years ago.
