Too wet, too dry; rarely just right. Putting up high-quality hay is a balancing act that requires good timing, reliable equipment and a little bit of luck. Monitoring moisture levels in your hay crop throughout the production process can help harvest better, more consistent high-quality hay.
If stored properly, your hay can be kept for long periods of time without nutrient loss. Whether round or square, large or small bales, using the best twine or wrap is important to preserve hay quality and bale integrity.
With your know-how, the right equipment, the latest technology and a little bit of weather luck, high-quality hay is a beautiful — not to mention, valuable — thing. We call it high-efficiency hay.
Whether you’re moving bales off the hay field, cleaning cattle pens or loading a mixer wagon, the new L10 series premium loaders from Case IH deliver features that help you work more efficiently.
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.
