have some gone, some left (maybe 20 bales grass) of our early hay.
The very clean and dry ryelage cover crop is available (don't
forget those potentially muddy 2021 Spring potentials and something
different to keep cows happy. Some are actually $ covered bales to
help make the wait.
There is some first cutting grass hay (never has been this early, this
good and unfortunately more a struggle for the guy making the bale vs
ez to bale course July grass)
it is way way too much work 14 days of my life and a few dozen bales
here and there for as little as it nets (even if socially distancing
is the only other game in town to occupy my free time) and we have
accomplished the task of keeping the field maintained (and terrorizing
small animals way too early IMHO for the worth) so if there is a July
drought, this is likely all we mess with. If there is not a July
drought, it will probably do too much damage to screw around with plus
leave the 2021 grass in less viable state. Sustainability is not mass
quantities. AND clipping early before it goes to seed might defeat the
potential to do a bit of wild life encouragement (unless I hit a deer
with my truck...then all bets are off...but for now we likely are
NIH disk mower, dark ages JD bar rake, pimped out with extra teeth
pulled by a Allis Chalmers WD45 baled with a Vermeer 605J auto weave
(home brewed manual auto weave over ride to make even bales right).
Basically work work work and more work (nothing automatic other then
the sub inch auto steer to mow straight where possible) #FarmON
Still some on hand, but gone when it is gone (and taking it year by
year how much enjoyment vs just bat wing mowing it down like every
other grain farmer does instead!
Ryelage: $45. Rye Covered: $55
(only a dozen total of that)
We will assist in loading if done in one session
We fertilize and maintain (spray as needed) what was grass
field ... and a couple of way too many acre wasted waterways. Those
are well maintained. Call it lazy or thinking about what you cows
deserve too, but we buggy corn and bean fertilizer straight through
waterways same as the crop gets. Not sure it is cost effective but
with auto steer our fertilizer coverage is dead on otherwise.
(PS: if you have no clue what rye is? Head over to
Twitter to amuse yourself "life after cows" where we check on our cows!)
