To elaborate on my "making hay the John Deere way" 1st post. I have personally only used 2 tools to cut hay so far over the past several years. I started out using a square back bushog. The bushhog did offer some conditioning, but not as much as conditioning as the Hesston Mower conditioner that I use now.
Regardless, of what I used to cut the hay: The only thing that changed is when I did the first raking. Actually even now when I use the Hesston Moco the timeline on when I rake the first time depends on the weather,humidity, and hay crop as it is different every haying so it is different every time.
When the hay goes totally flat on the ground so little to no air is getting underneath, and the top is totally dry and starting to bleach from the sun, or even if it just smells damp and bad underneath then that is a definite sign for me to rake it in a loose fluffy windrow when any one of these 3 scenarios occurs . Then I simply flippy the windrows as many times as needed with the 594 rake from the there.
