    If your willing to bring a few semis down the guy I buy from usually sells it to me for between $2.15 and 2.30 a bale but Im almost positive he couldnt get you 25 thousand bales at one time he onlys got about 10 mexicans and they can only bale about 1500 a week.

    I'm sure he would give you an awesome price if you were buying that quantity though.

    Do you have a number for him, its worth a shot to see if he could provide that much quanity. Most places from NC to Fl are telling me 3.20 to 3.55 and saying there is that much of a mark up. Thanks for your post!

    I tried to find a certain supplier out of GA who would let you keep the trailer till you could unload it. Coudn't find him. These guys don't do that, but they might be worth checking out. They are close to you.
