baleage

June 13, 2016

That is exactly what I have been doing, hay man! I hired my neighbor to make baleage from 3 small fields this year. We made 65, 2200 pound bales and wrapped them for winter feeding. The clover mixed hay had some spelt in it too. The spelt was left behind because I must have had my combine fan open too far, so blew seed back on to the ground. It grew nicely, so why not make feed out of it. I am sure the cows will relish this come winter.

After a breakdown with my hay mower, my friend Ron “baled” me out. He came and mowed for me with his mower. Thank goodness or I would be way behind. I also would have missed my opportunity to have my bales wrapped. This machine is on the go constantly, you snooze, you lose! Well, this time I won!

After a very long day of tractor work, it felt real good to be working with the horses today. We raked eight acres of dry hay for baling tomorrow. They did well as usual. The flies were almost absent. The sun was bright, but the outside temperature was cool. A nice breeze blew on man, horses and hay. I will sleep good tonight.
