Animal said: (quoted from post at 03:28:34 03/20/13) I combine clover seed every year with an all crop.I swath my clover and let it lay at least a week, and I leave it a little tall, like six inches when I cut it, then my grain table goes right under the swath when I combine it. And I always bale first cutting.

A couple questions, do you combine your second cutting then? Also what do you cut it with before you let it lay when you combine it? And how do you clean your seed? This thread includes a poll, click here to view in advanced forum view.

Before I had a haybine I would mow it with a cycle bar mower and rake it early and gently with a dew on, now I use the bine with open rollers and your right, its the second cutting.

If you'll pardon me for butting in. We would block the rollers open on the haybine, cut when dew was on make a tight windrow and would run 60 All Crop with pick up attachment. To clean the seed we would remove the screen hammer mill mixer and dump seed through hammermill. Then we would pick a breezy day and dump the seed on concrete slab from old milk barn holding pen. If no wind we set a couple of big fans and dumped seed in front of that. The seed was for our own use and was plenty clean to broadcast.
