Jason S. said: (quoted from post at 02:02:51 12/11/12) .... I also think because I don"t have new equipment like everybody around me people don"t think my hay is as good. I have older equipment but it"s good equipment. People frown because I mow with a haybine and not a disc mower and etc.........

If anything one could make an argument that a haybine makes for much cleaner hay than a disc mower or discbine. In fact many people do make that exact claim. Watch Youtube videos of the dust clouds coming out of a discmower or discbine. Well guess what all that dust has to go somewhere and lots of it ends up the hay you are cutting.

The advantages to a disc mower or discbine have absolutely nothing to do with the quality of product produced. The merits of a discmower cutter are simply in speed of cut, easier cutter maintenance, and better ability to avoid clogs and cut downed crops and slightly wet crops. In short they cut much faster, but if anything do produce a slightly inferior product to a haybine. In the best of conditions the end product is only equal to the product of a haybine - it is certainly not any better. And we have not even touched the subject of remaining crop regrowth with that edge typically going to a haybine as well for faster regrowth.

The pickiest of horsey customers will actually prefer hay from a haybine as it is usually cleaner. I know if I had to eat the hay myself then I would choose the hay cut with a haybine over that cut with a disc mower, drum mower, or discbine every time.
