We live in the dry desert southwest.We can cut a 14-16 ft swath and lay it in a 'baleable' windrow.It will dry in 3-6 days.Some of the heavier,wet crops need to be flipped.We have done triticale,drys fine.Sorgum/sudan is a bit of a challenge,but it will usually dry enough to bale.When I see how you guys "back east" have to deal with rain/humidity,I have to wonder how you guys ever get any hay put up 'right'.My hat's off to you hay growers!

Trust me DeltaRed, we only get hay put up "right" about once every 6 years. I grow alfalfa and getting it dry baled "right" is a challenge almost every cutting. I've got all the toys....conditioner rolls on discbine, tedder, preservative on the baler, do silage bales....all to overcome the hassles of our high humidity and frequent rainfall. Last summer on my third cutting I was able to mow and leave in the windrow and baled it two days later. I baled it straight out of the windrow......never touched it after I mowed it. I've been able to do that once in the last 6 years! It was some of the most beautiful leaf filled hay I"ve ever seen. Getting hay baled "right" here in Missouri requires a major drought! I envy you guys out west who have to worry about the hay getting too dry.
