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.
Communication among family members, employees, suppliers and service providers is critical to helping your farm stay efficient and productive. Imagine if those lines of communication extended to your different makes and models of equipment, displays and software. That’s where ISOBUS can help.
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.
