What costs have increased? Net wrap up $1/bale? (That is a little high but about right) Equipment is the same as ridiculous as last year? (2023 baler is up $7000 over a 2022) Diesel is up, what $2 vs $4.50 now. Last fill up was under $2.00 and today farm is $4.95 so 2 1/2 as much) So you should have 40 gallons total in making 100 bales, or 0.4 gal per bale. ( I do some of my own hay that produces like that but in the rough thin areas that fuel number will double. So $1 per bale more in fuel.
