Baled some hay

Cut my hay on Monday, turned it on Wednesday and bales yesterday. Used dad's DC and my Case 282 rake to turn it. This was thick hay and had a lot of volunteer clover in it so getting it dry was tough.


Yesterday my grandson Gage used the 830 to rake it again and double the rows. Was his first time and he did a good job.


After a couple hours to dry some we baled it with my 200 Case baler. Randell drove for that and Gage and Jordan stacked. My son Nick came later and helped too.


The last of the square bales. Got enough of those for this year I think.

Baled the rest in round bales, got 4 more 5x6 bales on top of 260 squares.


Don't hold it against me that the round baler is not Case, it's borrowed and beggars can't be choosers. Lol.

Here are a couple videos of the boys driving.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see...and if you have any doubts about it being good & dry, you leave it in field awhile rather than risk a barn fire.

Jon; I'm thinking that you should develop a U-Tube channel Called "Grampy Jon's Kingdom". Dustin has been up a little and we are slowly getting more firewood made and stored away. I bet it was cooler making firewood here in the shady woods than making hay out in the hot sun at your place. HeHe,-----------------------Loren

It's supposed to be hot and humid for making hay, supposed to be snow on the ground for making wood. It's in the rules.

He's driving in just the right spot and going just the right speed to get that hay to come off the rake bottom side up. Very hard to do. Its like a cat,,,always lands on its feet.

My 605F has hydraulics and the angles braces to be able to straighten it up.

I didnít realize the G was that cut down from the F series. I know itís a lighter version of the F.

Case sold Hesston round balers and windrowers private labeled as Case. They stopped selling the windrowers some time in the 70's and switched to New Holland balers after the merger.

I ask because I don't know.
Can you bale wet hay.
If not how dry does it have to be.
Why do people leave hay bales in the field.For days. Before they pick it up.

Hay needs to be dry to store well. You can bale wet and wrap it like Bruce in Canada does. As for leaving bales I would say it's a time issue. Bale first, then pick up the bales when you have time.

Thanks for the information. I work on a hay crew at 15. I am 70 now so it has been a few years. So I forgot a few things.

Case has sold all sorts of round balers for years. Some are made by other companies and just rebranded for Case IH.

Did Case ever make, or even re-brand a round baler, and sell it?
