@  Bonfire : (23 July 2014 - 09:07 PM) Buncha cowboy hats huh? Stop in Stillwater, OK on the way back!!! Do me a favor while in Cheyenne. Count how many are wearing black felt hats this time of year.

@  stack em up : (23 July 2014 - 08:45 PM) Cheyenne is friggin packed! Never seen so many cowboy hats in all my life! I'll take and post
@  jturbo10 : (23 July 2014 - 08:44 PM) 71 degrees, winds up to 40 mph from the north, and 91 % humidity with light rain. Wx came out of Oklahoma but it is mostly high winds with light rain for now. Any rain is appreciated in July and I just top dressed my 3rd cutting after we had a two inch rain. Just lost power to house so someone is getting pummeled.
@  Shetland She... : (23 July 2014 - 07:32 PM) Rain just got here to NB! :rolleyes: No hay down! :P
@  Dill : (23 July 2014 - 07:01 PM) Watching a thunder storm roll in over the hill is so much more relaxing when I don't have hay down. Temp just dropped 15 degrees in about a minute.
@  weatherman : (23 July 2014 - 06:58 PM) Chance of rain 20%...Cut 8 acres...2 hours after cutting...rain
@  rajela : (23 July 2014 - 05:51 PM) Raining like a double C@#%! on a flat rock here.
@  NDVA HAYMAN : (23 July 2014 - 05:46 PM) Still no rain here. Burning up
@  Shetland She... : (23 July 2014 - 05:42 PM) "No legume -- Alfalfa is okay!" :confused: Say what?!?! :rolleyes: :lol:
@  Chessiedog : (23 July 2014 - 04:51 PM) saw on hay wanted : Comments: need cheap hay for horse with IR (typically lower quality hay... no legume or timothy, alfalfa is OK, but prefer grass) ok :lol:
@  Shetland She... : (23 July 2014 - 04:50 PM) Just top dressed some of mine with 23-0-30! Horsey customers love that 2nd crop RCG, if I can make it before it heads out! :D
@  Shetland She... : (23 July 2014 - 04:47 PM) Better get it cut afore you need a chainsaw! :P
@  Bgriffin856 : (23 July 2014 - 03:26 PM) Second cutting reed canary grass is knee to waist high and heading......
@  Bgriffin856 : (23 July 2014 - 02:59 PM) Well the engine in the 1066 crapped out on my dad while he was mowing hay. I think a sleeve cavitated :(
@  mlappin : (23 July 2014 - 02:35 PM) What a difference a few hundred miles makes, the corn that normally needs irrigation will do well, the rest will be lucky to hit 150 b/a I'm guessing
@  kyfred : (23 July 2014 - 12:36 PM) Getting a little rain here in No. KY
@  haybaler101 : (23 July 2014 - 10:12 AM) Yes, another beautiful rain! This not only finishes the corn but I think will shatter yield records for second year in a row. There will be some hit 300.
@  Maryland Rid... : (23 July 2014 - 09:18 AM) pouring rain here!
@  Nitram : (23 July 2014 - 08:38 AM) One day grass hay ...in the thinner places
