While trying to get the corn and soybeans planted, Franklin County Ohio farmer, Neall Weber says he missed a really good opportunity to get some hay made.
“A couple weeks ago would have been the primetime to start getting first cutting up, the longer we go the more the grasses will go to head and some won’t look as nice in the bale for some of our equine customers that are very particular,” said Weber. “But it should be fine, it’s always difficult to get good hay up first cutting.”
Weber says ideally once they mow hay, they need a good three days of drying before they bale. Neall adds that while the quality may be down some, the quantity should be excellent.
