i always expect bad,then i get to feel better in a good year! seriously though im expecting at least one more dry year here if it follows the historical record.about every 20-30 years or so we get four or five drier than normal.

In my experience,a hard open winter will do it more harm than a drought.

Good question, I have cut three time due to the heat and stress blooming. Now in the last 10 days gotten nearly 5-6" of rain and will get two more cuttings if the frost is not early and still have less in the barn than with three cuttings last year.

Anyone that could answer your question should not waste their time on hay, they need to be in stock market or weather forcasting or other such! :)

One thing I have learned in the 30 plus years I have doing hay you never count your bales till you have them in the barn. I have seen 2 or 3 bad years then all at once you get 2 or on a very good year 3 cuttings and all you know for sure is when you have it in the barn. Sort of like counting chickens before they hatch all you know is you have X number of eggs but how many hatch is a thing you do not know till you have bird in hand. That said this is the worst year I have ever seen
