  1. Tips to help producers get the best value in hay

    The haying situation last spring and so far this summer has been a little different than usual due to the prolonged and widespread rains. Historically, producers with winter annual forages to bale, suchas ryegrass and graze-out wheat, could compare the risk of cutting hay early and getting it rained on during hay curing versus the certainty of lower quality by waiting to cut it. However, this year, excessive rainfall has taken most of those decisions away and forced producers to just wait it out. The bright spot is that there should be plenty of hay available for purchase. If that turns out to be the case, then you can and should be able to "shop" for the best hay available.
