The grass is high and the weather is hot, so it is time to hay our fields again. If we had the equipment and expertise I would like to do it ourselves. As we don't, we have an excellent resource in Aubrey Crouch. He is very fair in the shares and makes sure we get enough hay for all our horses for the year. In return he gets half the first cutting and all of the second cutting for his cows.
We have been spraying for weeds which increases the value of our hay and next year we are planning to fertilize the fields. We have to research the best kind for our sprayer. Plus been having problems with the sprayer, so we have been putting it off.
