I wish someone would go to cutting hay here. We could use the rain.
We got a good splash last night, doesn't amount to much, probably 1/4" or so, but it sure took the clouds of pine pollen out of the air

Dang, that sucks hitting a calf with the swather :(

I wonder if you have or have access to a thermal scope you could scan a field before rolling out to try and not do that?
