Have yaw got any hay twisted up?

Well, we have about 200 bales of round baleage and only need about half that but can't find buyers for the rest yet. Then, we got a long dry spell and the milkweed took over. (Hate the milkweed for haymaking but the monarch butterflies (it's their only food source) have been amazing. Haven't seen this many since I was a kid. Trying to look on the bright side lol). Since then, we've had rain galore so haven't got a second cutting yet. We need to make some small squares but it's all going to weed...No letup in sight thru the end of the month.

How about you?

Wondered where you were. Save that hay if you can, you'll have buyers. Boy did I ever get hosed this spring having to buy hay. Just about had to sell my son and wife to get it bought.

Just make sure you get a good price for 'em. ;-)
Our area is actually overstocked with hay this year. Started off with lots of people having leftover. The decimation of the dairy industry around here made hay demand plummet. Had the extension agent out 2 weeks ago and he said he has people begging him to help find a market but the bulk buyers won't even return his calls....So we may hold onto a few more cows than we planned; we have a few nice experienced ones (with some good years left) we'd thought to sell but may retain.

Glad you're a bit better and hope you continue to heal up!
I'm still wrestling with my torn-up neck and shoulder, ugh. Been since early Feb. Gets a bit better then I try to resume normal stuff and get it agitated again. I always heard old age wasn't for wimps but no one warned me about middle age!
