Hay is up 76% in nine months

That’s what Asymptotic Life discovered when they went to buy more hay for their goats. The increase is due to the drought, which has cut supply, and oil prices, which has increased production costs. Those tractors run on diesel. So do they trucks that ship it.

Fertilizer is getting more expensive too, because natural gas is used to produce it.

Farmers and ranchers will be getting squeezed, and the price of food will continue to rise.
