Hey D7E

Do you get two cuttings in usually up there? I'm in Syracuse and my hay man usually gets in 2 cuttings, sometimes 3. Just curious what your growing seasons like a little further north?

Usually 3 cuts but the 3rd did'nt get done this year as combining and tillage was very late so there was'nt time to do everything and the hay got ignored a little.

If you look real close at the pics you can see the tops of the alfalfa sticking up thru the snow.

Money in the bank... rolling out of those fields! ;)

I used to sit in haystacks hunting coyotes at those temps. Now, if it was +90F at that time; you'd have to call 911 for me... wouldna made it off the stack!

Heated truck - heated tractor. The only time it's nippy is when you strap the bales down. I'd do it for $175-$225/ton.

Thanks for sharin' - D7E.
