One Response to Hay Crisis Gets Ugly

  1. Prices everywhere for everything seem to be rising yet I don’t hear a peep of concern from our Govt officials. I keep hearing about the drought raising prices but then read that besides corn, they now want sugar cane added to the ethanol bio fuel fiasco. To show you how much basic food staples have risen, 5 months ago I was spending $200 a month on them. The same things are now at $300! I thank the Lord I learned how to cook most everything from scratch…lots cheaper but still too expensive.
