Are you ready to cut hay?

As we approach the midpoint of May, many farmers are preparing to harvest the 1st cutting of this year's hay crop.  I have noticed that a few producers have already begun, and more will get started soon if the weather cooperates!

Dr. Stephen Barnhart, ISU Extension Agronomist, gives some good suggestions on timing the 1st cutting. www.extension.iastate.edu/CropNews/2010/0513barnhart.htm

Matt Digman, University of Wisconsin-Madison, has some tips on making sure your equipment is ready to go.  www.agweb.com/news_printer.aspx?articleID=157317

If you harvest haylage, you may find this helpful in improving your forage quality. www.progressiveforage.com/~proforag/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2797:0409-fg-ensiling-what-to-know-before-you-start-the-pile&catid=89:storage&Itemid=123

Good luck with your hay crop!
