I looked at an areal view of the land & it's not too bad. The largest field is a hair over 10 acres, the smallest is 2. Shouldn't be so bad with 3-16's & I have plenty of time to do it in. May even split that 10 in two.
Not sure where I'm going to hire a combine from, yet. The guy that does custom work around here is the same one that's losing out on the acreage on the horse farm. There's a few custom large square balers in the area, but no rounds. Good thing I have a year yet.
I don't understand the rations, either. There's a fiber pellet & a forage balancer they're currently buying to suppliment the hay. There are more ingredients between the two than there are chemicals in my pack of Camels. Just might leave the mixing alone & just buy the old Gehl mixer for the collection.
A larger haybine is now up to fourth on the "To Get" list.
