Disappointing Hay Harvest

Disappointing Hay Harvest

I had a few acres cut for hay this year as the cows weren’t keeping up and it was going to seed. On 25 acres I only got 15 bales. I knew one 10 acre patch would be sparse, but I was expecting 2 bales per acre on the remaining 15 yet I got less than one!

Since there was a one bale per acre minimum for cutting, I ended up paying $46 per bale – which is about what I could have bought it for. I will need to buy another 20 bales (at least) to make it through winter.

Praying for more rain. Perhaps I’ll be able to get a second cut.
