Ouch! I usually try to calculate a "burn rate" for our horses. Depending on weather usually they get 1/4 of a 60 lb bale 2 times a day so 4 1/2 bales a day now.At least you can grow hay there . My hay bill was the most expensive cost of owning horses when I had them .We were paying
$8 a bail for T/A from Canada .
I make our own hay to save money and control quality. Lucky I live on an old farm so we have hayfields and a barn Dittoto store hay and my rag tag equipment 1930's to 1960's keeps going...
In Poland there is almost no snow, even in the mountains. Mostly only cold & rain
Ditto here, keep setting new records for precipitation last 2 years. The thing is when you live on a farm in the country you really get to know the local weather and climate and it's pretty extreme now. Agriculture does best in "normal conditions". It's not just agriculture, we now have ice shoves with every wind storm, they used to be a spring event only when the ice melted - now lakes have not frozen over completely so they happen over and over.
