    What do y'all pay per bale for clean oat straw? In the past whenever I wanted straw I'd go to the barn of a fella that works nights at my regular job and throw five bales in the truck. Then when I'd see him I'd give him a five. Now that I'm doing lawn installs and using more my wife thinks maybe I'm shortchanging him at a dollar a bale.

    All I can tell you is I sell mine for $3.00 a bale. Others around here get any where from $2.50 to $4.00 a bale depending on quality and weight.

    The co-op sells little TINY bales for $2.50! About 1/2 the weight of the ones I buy from the old guy on E.State.
