I had a record number of bales from my one field, other was just normal. Had to sneak it in between the rains. Two different stables came with crews and loaded it all out for a discount, but it was still the most I have charged in a while and way better price for the buyer than retail outlets selling last years bales. I cleared enough from those fields to pay for vacation this year and kept enough for us to get thru the rest of the summer. Customers say it is great and have lined up for second cutting already. Hopefully I will have a good one there too. I think most people push too hard on hay thinking they have to cut it at a certain stage. You have to wait for the right string of days and don't cut more than you can reasonably finish in the time allowed. Better a little lower feed value from late cutting than worthless from mold. For horsey folk anyway...and they is my market.

I agree with Dave. Some of my neighbors insist regardless of the weather they "have" to cut at certain date, why I have no idea, they typically get about half of their hay off without any rain, I normally get almost all of mine, but it takes me about a month longer...
