BRG said:We will finish up with the rest of the oat hay this morning, then we will be done since it doesn't look like their will be any second cutting. Thought we may get some but this heat rolled in and took care of that. Looks like we got about twice as much as last year and put up less ground.
We decided to hire all of the cutting done this year. We desparately needed a different cutter and we put a pencil to it. It was cheaper to hire it done at $8 an acre than to make a yearly payment on a machine, then we would have the high $ fuel, parts, and labor on top of it. So we tried it and it worked great. They moved in and cut while we raked and baled behind them. When they broke down and had a $1000 part bill, I was glad that it wasn't my machine. Usually we would have a couple of those a year before.
It was a great haying year for us. Our ranch is by Timber Lake, SD. Best spring that I can remember. It is nice to see than it can remember how to rain here.

Hi Silver! I have never heard of 'bagging hay' and was wondering if you would please explain how one does it and what the advantages/disadvantages are? Thanks!
