The neighbor thats baling our hay this year mowed a 20 acre field yesterday. He was done by 2pm. It was a beautiful warm day around 80 with lots of sunshine. Today while we were at church he baled about 15 acres of it, raked a few more into rows and left the rest laying. I haven't had a chance to talk to him but this seems kinda quick to be baling to me. I've never baled any myself but we have been having ours baled by others for many years and I can't recall anyone ever baling the day after cuting before. He does cut with a New Holland conditioner or haybine, whatever it is called where you live. My reason for asking is that we are doing a 50/50 split on the hay and I get first pick of the rolls. Since I don't have any way to check the moisture content I'm thinking of letting him have these. I've got another 65 acres to be baled yet and I'm thinking about telling him I want mine to age a litle longer before baling. What do y'all think?
