    I’m reaching out to hear from fellow rescues/sanctuaries about costs of hay this year vs last, availability/supply and if you’re going to struggle feeding animals.

    I’m in Washington State, one of the largest suppliers of hay in the nation. We are experiencing lower availability and higher prices due to extreme drought, water being directed from the fields to fighting fires and heavy demand from other states that have the same problem. Washington also ships hay overseas.

    Price of a ton of Timothy in May was $285 ton. Now it’s around $425 per ton. Prices are expected to soar, possibly $500 or more a ton.

    I am concerned that we will see a huge spike of equines being rehomed or starving to death.

    What are your thoughts?
