Who Needs a Gym?!?
This is how I do my hay. Gerald keeps track of what is up there. I would guess between 900 and 1000 bales. It was just the 2 of us for about half of it. Second cutting is done and I will put third cutting in different areas in my other barns. I like to put up around 1500 to 1800 bales. I'd rather have too much then too little. I have some of last years first cutting left, the cows will probably get that. It is cheaper buying it off the field. Hay fields were plowed under this year for corn. I am a little concerned that there may be a hay shortage this winter. With the flooding and wild fires that ravaged the different parts of the country we may see semi loads leaving the Midwest. Don't worry Callie, I will have extra if you need it. That's what friends are for.
