Oats and feed peas

Post by Big Muddy rancher » Tue Jul 30, 2019 7:48 pm

I have a pretty good crop of Brown Oats and feed peas coming along.

What's the best stage to cut this crop?

Would a conditioner on a Haybine be hard on the peas or should it be backed off a bit?

Back it off some or you will be shelling peas. Where are your mowers?

Figured it would get too dirty mowing and raking on breaking.
