It’s been a little quiet on our Hay For Sale postings here, so I want to give you an update on 2015 hay production.
In short, it hasn’t stopped raining. We were fortunate to have two successful first cutting harvests before the rain started, but only managed to get in about 1/3 of our usual alfalfa mix and 1/2 of our Timothy hay. Nearly all of it sold out within days, with customers driving from as far as Illinois as the rain has impacted hay production across the midwest.
We are hoping to harvest some additional hay this weekend, and will be taking much greater chances with rain than we usually do in order to try to get hay in the barn for you. I also anticipate the hay quality and volume to be lower as we get into our second and third cuttings, as the grasses and legumes are both flowering much earlier in their growth cycle. Hopefully we’ll have July and August conditions that will get everything back on track.
Please keep an eye on our website at http://indianahayonline.com/for-sale/, and sign up for harvest notifications on the left side of the website.
Thank you, and have a wonderful 4th of July weekend!
