    I would guess $20-$25/roll, not sure what it is now days with the price of everything going up.

    Are you asking what people pay for said bale, or what it would cost you to cut and bale? In Ohio, we pay $20-$45 for a round bale, depending on density/freshness/makeup of the bale. I would think with the drought that's been going on in TX it would probably sell for triple that.

    South Texas cattlemen were paying $120 for 1200lb round bales last fall here in the midwest. They would buy all that could be cut.
