I been feeding since September but all this rain and cold has fields jumping. Don't rub it in you're getting snow.

Finished up a couple weeks back. Just in time for the cold snap.
Good news is I took and bunch to grass where nothing had been on all summer an moved some others to second growth hayfields. One more "moving day" and I should be pretty well set for a few weeks unless we get an early snow.
Not everything your neighbors do is wrong-Not everything they do is right,either.

Nice so many people need hay I'm cutting. This is what I do every morning

I don't think you'd ever get it dry enough up here.
