Hay is sold by the ton or by the bale; A Ton of hay is 2,000lbs
Most feed stores are after the lightest 3 string bale they can find,
normally 90lb to 100lbs.
2000lb/100lb=20 bales to the ton @ $15 a bale = $300 a ton
2000lb/90lb=22 bales to the ton @ $20 a bale = $420 a ton

A basic rule is to feed 2lbs for 100lbs.
