Description

Image is of a tall stack of hay bales with four horses feeding at the edge. Behind the hay is a stack of filled bags, mostly covered with tarps. A grain drill is partially visible at left. A caption accompanying the photo is “Hay Shipped From Seattle at $60 a Ton”. That cost would be equivalent to approximately $1,140 per ton in 2020 dollars.
