Mother Nature has been very kind to us farmers lately.
2 weeks of perfect weather have made for extraordinary haying and perfect hay. Early too.
I knew it was close to haying time when I started seeing all kinds of haying equipment being parked closer to fields.
In a matter of hours cows had discovered this antique tractor.
They gave it the once over....
and then went back to grazing.
On the other side of town the BIg haying had already begun.
The hay had been cut and now this rig was rolling it into windrows so the balers could pick it up.
He had several large fields to do and was out in the field raking until 9 pm with his lights on.
Whether hay is made with an antique tractor or a modern one, the results are the same:
Happy cows in winter.
How is all the haying going where you are?
Remember to stay hydrated during all this humid weather!
