1) Go through all current equipment, one at a time, and make sure they are ready for next season.
2) Buy myself a small square baler. This will be the final piece of equipment for me to be self-sufficient (I currently rent a neighbor's baler)
3) Soil test in March, apply fertilizer to Texas A&M recommendations
4) Look for a good cheap used industrial fan to use in my hay loft... lost ~30 bales due to mold in a poorly ventilated area of the barn this year.
5) Rest my back

We are also seriously looking at getting a Kuhns Accumulator. We have a very good supply of labor from the neighborhood, but the accumulator would greatly improve our flexibility and speed.
We need to add storage, but we are searching very hard for buildings we can rent this year so we don't have to build this year.
We will be adding a tedder this winter. We have not yet decided between a Sitrex or the NH.
