Straight 50 a ton is very fair in the big bale . We pay 1.00 a small square for standing or windowed straw. Very few sellers here , as the race is always on to plant dc soybeans. Straw market is currently out of wack with supply. We sell in a 200 mile radius and currently getting at least one call everyday from someone we don't supply looking for straw.We have baled every acre our farm has produced for 35 years , every acre , every other year, have seen pretty much no decline in soil tests. We do use some chicken litter and cover crop every acre not in wheat. We will average 2 tons removed per acre.You must remember, half your organic matter is in the roots .
