    $167/ton, that sucks! I am on the seacoast of NH and I am blessed with two salt depots. One is covered at $78/ton the other uncovered, can be very wet at $70.50/ton. I guess I have it good. After wednesdays ice storm the piles are disappearing very fast.

    could you just have your broker sell you some from KS and call a trucking broker and maybe they can take some corn out to the feed lots and cut you a deal....how far are you from central KS? salt would be $40-50/ton and trucking could be $2/mile if they got a load going out....

    Make sure you ask what kind of trailer there using if you go this route.
    I got a load in last winter from Ohio and they used a belly dump, most farmers use these for hauling grain. It was snowing like hell of course ( when he showed up ), and the driver needed "hells half acre" to unload that damn truck.
    Needless to say every flake/granule that went in the bin was very wet, and that half acre burned off snow for the rest of the year.

    yep that's what they use to haul around here....we get most of it in the summer so it's no problem....the last 3 times they came it was good weather...of course we have farmers haul ours, they don't long haul in bad or cold weather....

    Not sure where you are in N.E. Ohio, but my price picked up in Ashtabula is $98/ton picked up plus delivery.

    Even if it was a $20 delivery, it would be cheaper than that.
