Baling Hay - Second Cut August 30 2014, 0 Comments

Bailing hay with a New Holland tractor

August has been a little wet. In fact, our own 2nd hay cut got rained on. We'll use it for mulch in the pumpkin and squash field next season. Fortunately, our neighbor is a much better farmer than me. Last night we all brought off a few hundred bales of tender sweet 2nd cut from his field. The sheep are much relieved! It was a nice cool night for haying. Here's an action "hay-cam" video of a New Holland tractor (almost new) and baler coming down a long windrow. That's Mt Abraham and Vermont's Green Mountains in the background. Nice night.
