I cut with a 14' feet haybine,the windrows it leaves are 5 1/2' wide and perfect for my 6' wide pickup baler.My hay is alfalfa/grass mix and straight meadow brome.
If it stays dry I can usually bale the alfalfa/grass up in 3 to 5 days right out of the swath, the meadow brome often on the second day after cutting.I am all by myself putting up 300 acre/year. I like it simple, i ain't looking for extra work.
All my neighbors use V wheel rakes and roll 2 or 3 swaths together. They can bale a day sooner than me but the extra cost and losses aren't worth it in my opinion.
When we get rain on it before baling the hay they have a 'ell of a time getting it dry whereas i go in with the combine pickup and just fluff it up in the morning and often go bale in the afternoon, i find it dries just as fast as with raking and i can do it more than once if need be. I never lost a hay crop yet even after repeated rain.Last year was a bad year for making hay, the quality was not that great but it was still decent hay.
The neighbors lost a couple fields though.
