@  joechambers : (27 August 2015 - 03:25 PM) I have a case square baler SB541. I am having trouble getting my bales to come out 3' even. Can anyone give me any suggestions? I've got the win-rose correct, but that's not it. Has anyone else had this problem?
@  ARD Farm : (27 August 2015 - 12:31 PM) We got just a sprinkle last night, that was it, but it's cool and still here too. I've been lucy. Rank hay but missed any precip. Came off dry and suprisingly green (but stemmy).
@  mlappin : (27 August 2015 - 12:20 PM) Oh mines gotten misted a few times, but not washed. Rained enough yesterday to get the road yet but not the gravel drives. Good chance here Saturday though.
@  ARD Farm : (27 August 2015 - 12:13 PM) Mlappin....It's not gonna rain, in fact, it's supposed to clear off later today and be nice. I may go cut some this weekend. I was waiting to see if yours got washed but I don't think it's going to. On another upbeat note, The second stinger my wife got has basically killed every skeeter in the yard....thanks
@  jturbo10 : (27 August 2015 - 11:42 AM) Luke: Great news, thanks for sharing as it is a great reminder about the dangers lurking in our business. Wishing him a speedy total recovery.
@  mlappin : (27 August 2015 - 09:31 AM) Well 3rd day in a row that was supposed to be sunny and windy when I mowed hay last, today is dead calm, overcast, and humid. Gonna get this stuff washed yet.
@  Hokelund Farm : (27 August 2015 - 08:34 AM) overcast today but if things go well I should get 20 acres baled today
