Tag: Hay & Forage
As you wait for your fields to dry (or thaw) and prepare to hit the ground running, don’t forget to take a walk — across your hayfields. Spring is the best time to evaluate alfalfa stands, consider fertility and pest control, and prepare for a timely harvest.
Forage quality determines the amount of supplemental feed required to maintain livestock performance. If your hay tools work as a system to achieve the right mix of power, efficiency and versatility to get the job done, they will help you harvest at peak nutritional value.
As you make plans to attend your favorite organizations’ annual meetings and conventions early this year, be sure to pencil in a visit with Case IH. You’ll find us at events across the country. We’d sure enjoy meeting you and learning about your operation.
Do you have trash or treasure sitting in your field? Combines can help you execute on the decisions you make at harvest that will equal effective residue management — turning trash into treasure.

Just like you evaluate hybrid selection, weed control, fertility and other agronomic factors across your farm, the end of the growing season is a great time to evaluate how other aspects of your operation performed, including your equipment. Case IH fleet management tools can help.
Whether you’re storing hay or the equipment that helped put it up, getting long-term storage right helps protect its value and longevity.
Late-season haying can be especially challenging. Fewer hours of daylight, heavy nighttime dew and an increasing likelihood of precipitation often tighten the window for high-quality forage production. Case IH ThirtyPlus™ hay preservative can help you be more efficient in your haying and hit optimal timing.
Whether you’re eyeing the end of your haying season with one last cutting of high-quality alfalfa or perhaps considering leaving a few acres of grass hay as insurance against a tough winter, Case IH can help you slice through the toughest conditions and finish the season strong.
Whether you store your hay, feed it to livestock or sell it, you need the right tools to harvest at peak nutrition. DJ Wassenaar, owner of County Line Custom Farming in Jarvis, Ontario, uses Case IH equipment to improve alfalfa quality for his 150+ customers and reap the benefits of high-efficiency hay.
