This is not a stunt, I actually did this Christmas afternoon, although it didn't make much it is the difference between running out of hay and squeaking by and it will be razor thin at best. I pray everyday for warm temps and no snow and ice. There is no hay to be had around here, after one of the wettest years on record the rain shut off in mid May and turned hot and we saw very little rain until mid November. There was no fall grass at all. I had to start feeding hay at the end of August which put me in this predicament in the first place.

Ditto.

 

Great start to the season in New Hampshire then the rain shut off. I ran my equipment over ten acres in mid November and ended up with 6 rounds. After I started cutting the field I started getting the "this is really stupid " feeling but it wasn't my own field and I couldn't leave it half cut.

 

Had to start feeding two herds in August (normally mid Oct.).

 

Forecast is for 8 inches of snow tonight. Poor mans fertilizer....

21 tons of fertilizer on and waiting for the rains arrival. Spitting some snow yesterday while spreading. Fields are looking great and if all goes well should be excellent yields. If all goes well should have 2 tons on the house after their truck broke down and couldn't unload.
