1. Mixed Grass. Alfalfa.

2. Southern MN

3. 2 for mg. 3 for alfalfa.

4. Depends so much on the weather & type of grass I'm in. Alfalfa I can get 3 ton. Grass tends to be waste land, so very varriable.

5. Yes.

6. I sold 50 bales last year, got $1.75 - they picked up. I don't sell much. I see it go at hay auctions for $1.75 - 2.25. Rare to get more than $3 around 'here' even for top quality alfalfa.

annual small grains double crop soybeans (both for hay)

2. What part of the country are you in?

fescue/clover: 2 cuttings and grazing between
alfalfa timothy: 4
alfalfa orchardgrass: 6
alfalfa fescue: 3
orchard grass/ red clover: 2 and summer/fall grazing
annuals. cut 1 time each


4. How many tons of hay per acre do you get per year?...or per cut?

normal year or this year? normally anywhere from 3-8 depennding. On the low side would be the fields that I hay and pasture but I also get at least 3-4 months of rotational grazing off of them. My alfalfa orchard grass and the small grains double crop yield the most but Im taking an early cutting for round bale silage off in late April.

5. Do you round bale or square bale?

both

6. How much $ do you get per bale?

normal year $3.50 for the squares and $25-$35 for small rounds stored inside. This year $5 for the squares and $40 for rounds. Im out, and buying to resell. Right now what Im buying in the rounds is 5x5's as opposed to my 4x4's but Im paying $55 (making my money on the trucking and a little comission).
