First post, a few questions
Posted 15 July 2009 - 05:48 PM
now my questions,
1. when they are talking about tons per acre, is that per year or per cutting?
2. should I give the fields a quick raking in the spring to clean up any clumps of mulch?
3. The property runs along a major river, anyone ever draft water out of a river for irrigation when needed?
4. how effective has craigs list been for marketing hay in the field? are the people coming when you tell them to?
This property is in Maine just north of Bangor, am I going to have to plan on shipping a majority of it to find a demand? Thinking along the lines of purchasing a gooseneck and bigger truck.

Tons/acre would be per yer
Draft water..... what is that? -Or do you mean pumping? I know that some guys have had trouble with 'trash' clogging the suction lines when the river has dirty water - leaves/sticks..... You may also have to check into how water is dealt with - you may not be allowed to get water out of the river, unless you pay.
No idea on craigs list, but I would imagine that it depends more on the person, and how bad they want the hay. I've never sold anything out in the field. We've always had to truck anything that was worthwhile.

I wouldn't put a draft in a stream without authorization.
