Buy hay the smart way! Many horse owners purchase hay by the bale. However, the more economical way to purchase and compare different hay types is to calculate the price per ton. The Hay Price Calculator app aids hay buyers in calculating price per ton and provides cost comparisons of small square, large round, and large square bales. Hay buyers simply select the bale type, enter in the bale weight and price per bale, and the Hay Price Calculator app calculates price per ton, allowing the buyer to compare and choose the most economical hay. Hay buyers should also take into consideration hay quality when determining economics.

The app is available for use with Android and Apple products and costs $0.99.

Most users who have previously paid for the app will need to go into their app store and re-download the app (there will be no charge). Due to the length of time the app was out of the store, an automatic update may not be possible.
