Haying progressing slowly. Filled up the bale yard that is game fenced, so taking a chance on putting some outside.

Did manage to make 64 really nice dry hay bales yesterday, first ones of the year. On top of the 203 haylage bales it was a pretty productive day. But it's raining now, according to the forecast it could be some time before we get back to it.

the salary and administration of that crop insurance adjuster fellow probably exceeds the payouts, right?

Nice pics

I think you are quite correct. We'll see how it goes this year, might not even call them next year.

Love the pics. Especially love the crop circle specialist!!! A lady last week asked about circles in her hay field and I told her it was probably a bear - she didn't want to believe me. Said it was too perfect.

I looked at the pictures though it was some nice hay and beautiful area. I saw the bear but didn't see it. 🐻 Didn't realize it was a BEAR! 😁
