Anyone hear of hay hoarding going on?!? THere is ramblings about it out here in CA. Nothing really confirmed. I sure HOPE NOT. No toilet paper and no Hay sounds like a recipe for disaster. lol

Not hay hoarding but we are running low on hay over here. Its pretty scarce to find. My hay guy ran out of his own hay a few weeks ago and had to buy from someone to keep customers supplied. Stored inside round bales are extremely hard to find as are squares. this would be coastal

I'm in So California so literally about 100 miles from some of the biggest hay fields in the western US. I sure hope it doesn't happen here. I just got my normal 30 bales delivered so I should be fine couple months. Maybe this will kind of normalize by then.

Me too! I buy once a year anyway so my barn is plum full, thankfully! I did buy extra feed .... "just in case" but I truly don't believe there will be an issue getting it. (I also am avoiding going out so my 1 trip to the feedstore, I grabbed a few extra bags ). just like groceries and TP ... only reason there is a shortage and empty shelves is because people are making multiple trips to the store and buying more than necessary.. because of the " hoarding"  just when you think you have a great idea of what you should stock up on, everyone and their mothers are already a step ahead and then that leaves you SOL. My dog food, out,  cat food, out .... geez I haven't even thought about my little parakeets lol! I always use to just grab a bag of their seeds and spray millet when I would grocery shop... I better go check and see how much I have for them!

Buyer beware as I have heard of places that you order from (like Chewy.com) are hiking up the prices for pet food.

No Issues in my area of Western Ky. Most people around here buy all their hay in just a couple of transactions, not in small purchases. I usually buy around 1000 bales per year. That goes in the barn as quickly as I can get my hands on it.  If I was trying to buy hay now, it would be super hard to find.  Not because people are hording - just how the market works here, I don't expect. Covid-19 to change that, unless the people I always buy hay from happen to seriously get sick and I have to search for a new supplier.  I have noticed that our prices have gone up over the last couple of years, because more farmers are starting to ship it to other parts of the country where they can get more money per bale.

Is anyone nervous or concerned about availability of your feed or supplements? I have enough feed for 40 days, I dont want to over buy, but I also do not want to run out.... if things get tough to get or take longer than usual. There is just no way of knowing at this point. Like Chewy ... they always ALWAYS had the fastest delivery around ... I'd always have my stuff within a few days of ordering. I ordered a few weeks ago and I just now got a notification that its shipping but will be in a few shipments because a few things are still unavailable.. simple things I've ordered.. a bag of cat food, some fly spray and some medicine for my cat. I read on Facebook that OE Nutraceuticals will indeed be affected on supply and shipping to customers because of this. I do not use OE but I know it's pretty popular.  I did receive a package quickly from Platinum on my autoship .. it arrived in a few days of the order. Thinking about grabbing some extra feed this weekend for all my critters... they could live without the extra supplements if needed... I just do not want to run out of feed for any of them, but i also do not want to run the risk of buying too much feed, mostly horse feed, and have it go bad or lose nutrients from sitting too long. I use to just buy a few bags at a time. I'd hate to get the message from my feed dealer saying they dont know when feed will be delivered next and I'm down to half a bag

My hay guy and I were just talking about this yesterday! I used to buy all at once and it was never an issue but my guy quit baling squares last year so had to move to this guy. Then, horse issues prevented me from getting a bunch at once. I'm glad it hasn't been an issue yet, but mine should be on pasture next month so that will help me out a bit.

We always buy at least a year's worth+ at a time, so have plenty, especially with pasture coming on.  And we've contracted for our hay for this year already.  On grain/feed, we always buy that ahead a ways too when it's on sale because we can't get good stuff locally.

I hoarded hay for the first time ever last fall. We finally put the hay up here ourselves. My barn is full. I still have probably 600 I can sell. Hay suppliers here have more now than they have in the past 5 years. Hay is plentiful around where I am.
