With the cooperation of our custom hired field workers and the weather, we made a first cut of hay on 100 acres during the second week in June. We also cut some rented land seven miles away that would normally be cut for bedding hay. With a carryover of bedding hay from 2013, it was decided to do a first cut for feed and hope for a good second cut on these fields as welll. The fields were mowed, tedded, raked and chopped in two days. All the forage was stored in our upright silo and will be fed to the cows as haylage.
