Well Nesikep you're going to get twice the pounds on a third of the property. This cutting is 6 weeks after our last frost and I'll get the hay tested to see where I'm at. I pick those turnips out of my pastures by hand, I don't think that would work there. Do the cows eat the wild turnips up there?

we have no wild turnips here... We had a painfully slow spring, we just had a heat wave for the last week where we've been getting into the 90's.. the month before that we were struggling to get above 70.. Mountains had fresh snow on them last weekend. That mustard grew about 3 feet in a week! I think my record yield in a good field was ~14,000lbs per acre over 3 cuts.. doesn't happen often though.. First cut on that field was 660 x 80 lb bales on 6 acres

It'll make a turd.. they'll pick the leaves out and leave the stems.. I'm sure there's not much nutrition to it, but as hard as it is to see, the alfalfa is 2-3 feet high in there too
