Putting up some grass hay
Nice looking hay. What is the grass? And what kind of baler is that? I am thinking of maybe getting a small square baler, just haven't quite convinced the bale stack that that is what we need.
Looks good Jeff. Nice green looking bales are a wonderful sight.
I too would like to find a cheap square baler to put up some hay for the barn and the odd horse type excursion.
The baler is a Freeman 330. My dad and I bought it when I graduated high school 25 years ago. I has been drug around by 4 different tractors over the years. I have another one just like it. This one is my favorite. Just bales and bales.

The grass is fescue. We are running a month behind here this year due to a cold May.
Id guess from the color of those hills there is a set of wheel lines some where

Slow start maybe, but going by the color though. you must have had some rain!

Freeman balers are pretty good old machines. Good looking hay thats $250-300 dollar hay out in our country.
