After reviewing our feed levels for our cows, we decided not to harvest first cutting of hay for ourselves. My dad sold the hay to a local farmer. 1st crop is usually best for haylege (a fermented chopped hay for you non-farm types), but we have enough left over from last year. The next cutting we will most likely make dry hay bales for ourselves. Above is a snapshot of them harvesting.
My Dad and Zachary have been fine tuning a spraying rig we purchased this spring. Our spraying needs for our crops are not very complex. So to save some money, we decided to do our own this year, instead of hiring the job done.
