So now, I havnt been on a horse in 2 years and dont miss it a bit but what I learned from that has helped in producing quality hay and being able to market it. We have more hay customers in our area than we can supply for. This has led us to begin planning on expanding our business.
Researching over the past few years has brought me to this site many times. Figured it was finally time to join up. Look forward to learning more from yall and sharing my experiences.

Just curious, where in Eastern Oregon do you live? I spent 8 years working in Oregon a while back and used to love to head to the Eastern side of the state for the sunshine, dry weather, and bird hunting. The Hell's Canyon and Steens Mtn areas are some of my favorite places...

I am just shy of 30 and just smart enough to get into haying last year. Of all the years and with my family all row crop, I am obviously extremely grateful for all the info and stories on this site.
Currently my operation is too big to be called a hobby but I am still farming with money (other job) and not farming for money. Rest assured that I am not one of the hay prostitues on craigslist or such. I actually take a lot of pride when I end up on the higher end of auctions with the big boys (and possibly some of the members here)
Regardless I will try to get a post about my first field which will bring a lot of laughs for most of you. And Again I can not thank you all for the wealth of information in these forums.... Hopefully as the years go on, I might actually learn enough to post someful useful for you

Alfalfa comprises the majority of our acreage, even though it is down by about 50% this year due to the insane cotton market. We are currently farming 520 acres of Alfalfa for hay, we use two New Holland 3'x4' balers. We actually have yet to run them this year, as our first three cuttings were sold, in the windrow, to an export outfit.
We are also currently growing 500 acres of cotton, 140 acres of wheat and about 375 acres of assorted bermuda grass (Sultan, Sahara, 1012, Princess). We also grow/maintain a 3 acre nursery field of two types of grass that once cross pollinated become Princess grass.
