As we near the point in the haying season when you begin to plan your last cuttings of the season, it’s also a good time to consider evaluating hayfields for next year.
Certainly, there are more pleasant places to spend a summer day than inside a grain bin. But replacing a bearing on an auger during the heat of harvest isn’t much fun either. Spending some time on maintenance now will help keep the grain moving this fall.
