    Well, it's going to be that time of the year again pretty soon. I'm already on the lookout for bagged salt, so I was just wondering what the projected price for a pallet is. Just making sure, so I don't overpay...

    I use bulk. It only went up by $1 a ton compared to last year.... gotta imagine bagged will be pretty close to last year also.....

    It is....we used it last year....only complaint is kernel size is a little small, but obviously adjustments can be made for that.

    How about eastern Iowa anybody out there got some rates for here. I know last year my supplier was around 135.00 per ton and I think that was way over priced I managed to get by with not getting much.
