If you want a scary number.

Cottonseed to plant can run north of $20,000 per ton

cheers one must figure in all aspects...

Tis like the gold that @ work said:
"We don't make money off clean-up, if ya don't like it leave..."

The value of the idiot stick, (requires manual labor)... Got a $2.00 an hour raise, & new title, set-up man... twas roughly 8hrs cleaning up, & last day twas 16-24hrs clean-up...
Still paying the price for that...

Like told the person on phone for disability...

" If i'd gotten a $10,000,000.00 contract for the first 4 years, with a $2,000,000.00 sign-up bonus, like they get for catching, throwing, kicking, & running with a ball, we wouldn't be having this conversation, i 'd have better health insurance & still be working... Tis wanted in 50 states, low-income worker... rofl i'm expendable...
pappy"

FACT : Every time increase in minimum wage EVERY thing else goes up...

The deer just never took to it on our place. We had 5 locations scattered over 6,000 acres to test and they just didn't seem to care for it.

Yeah it's costly but not quite a dollar a seed.

A modern variety with all the hotrod genetics and seed treatment can cost over $500 a bag though most are $350-450 a bag. A bag will have around 230k seed in it. Planting rate where I'm at will vary from 20ish to over 50k seed/acre.

For my research trials I plant cotton at 53k for irrigated ground. If $450 a bag it cost just over $100 per acre to plant cotton in seed alone.

I love it. If I don’t see cotton fields when on my lease road, I know it’s going to be a slow year of hunting.

I know it's jumped way up because the 40% cottonseed range cubes I feed were $370/ton about 5 months back and now they are $470


High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

Do you think maybe because all of you have hipped on it and there are more wanting it that is why the cost is going up? DUH

yep, agree don k ... with increased demand, the gin or supplier can charge more since there is a limited season for supply.

I have been feeding protein to deer since 1989. I can say that just about every year the price of protein would drop at the end of the summer in August and then go up in Jan or Feb. Crops were being harvest in summer to fall and yields dictated pricing. Same in Jan-Feb...the worst time of the year and the highest demand for feed in the livestock industry. So if it was a bad harvest and not as much crop to hold over then prices went up after the first of the year. By the same token if their was a record harvest the prices generally stayed the same...but if it was a drought in areas and a bad winter then demand may draw on those record yields to drive the inventory down and prices up. Years ago it was standard to do fall bookings for contract prices for the fall into the spring. Cottonseed is the base protein for many livestock and wildlife feed. So with a dry year in many areas of the state and possible low harvest you are seeing the inventory drop from the demand. After deer season many start to feed so the draw on protein goes from 0 to 60 in that time.

I get increases - supply and demand - but to almost double from one year to the next is pretty radical IMO
