    It is not going to make you rich but you can make decent money if you are positioned well. If you already have the land or have good lease arrangements and have the equipment you should usually be able to have a 3:1 ratio on your investment, including your own time. There is definitely a spike in prices in the last year so it may go higher until the looming inflation/depression catches up with us.
    Depending on the hay quality I can produce a 4'x5' roll for as little as $11-$12. But that is what is commonly called scrub hay, sold to people who buy purely on price or feed it to certain animals such as goats who do well on scrub hay.
    We are one of few outfits around here who will custom round roll alfalfa. Most of it is squared baled or cubed and packaged. An alfalfa roll will sell for $180-$200 all day long. Like most folks, we square bale most of the alfalfa.
    Here is a good example of how lucrative packaging can be and how 'stupid' people are when they buy on ignorance and convenience:

    Anyone can by full bales of alfalfa weighing 50-60lbs for $10-$20 depending on their location and quantity. It is crazy.

    LOL, yeah I was looking at those small baggies for rabbits, and though, dang, I might as well go to the feed store and buy one big bale (and a bag to put it in) and come out ahead. Alas, I have no rabbit.

    Today's UFC main even, Max Holloway vs Calvin Kattar, was a barn burner. It's only January and it might be the fight of the year.

    Haven't yelled that much watching a fight in a long, long time.

    So Jacob is giving his first introductory course tonight for 2 new students....he is pretty excited.

    His instructor had to go out of town and asked him to do it for him.

    He is also running classes this week for him but he has run classes before.

    Funny, but I can't believe that's real. Has a Parks and Rec "Garry" vibe to it.

    Well, it all appears to come down to tomorrow. They have barricaded and increased police presence at the state capital and increased security at my building. Now wait and see if the FBI warnings about armed protests at 50 state capitals is correct, or a bluff, or since there was pre-warning, maybe the protestors have postponed it. I work about a 1/2 mile from the capital, but my building is no stranger to protests.

    I will know more after work tomorrow I guess

    Where I work is a government building, but not at that much risk. Still, I'm taking a half day. I don't expect anything to happen, I'm not expecting any violent riots tomorrow this far away, but part of situational awareness is avoiding those situations to begin with.

    I would avoid it too, but I currently work 3 days from home and 2 days in the office....and tomorrow is one of those 2 days. I dealt with protesters before when I was physical security, but they were not armed

    Hahaha yes ah I get the reference ;).

    And yeah I couldn't help but feel it was staged, especially at the start where he was really pointing out to be careful with the cable, but man if it is real, daaaaamn. It was quite a structure!
