Hate to hear this as I have spent hours reading his post over the years. Thanks to the good old web I’m sure many people will benefit from him for many years to come.

One of the great things about HT, Hay Wilson's immense knowledge even touched the Land Downunder. Like so many unsung heroes, Bill Wilson had many facets to his life, and in each he was well accomplished. RIP Hay Wilson, the world is a better place for having you.

Thanks for posting his obituary I always remember him referring to looking at pan evaporation forecast for cutting and drying hay, but I've been unable to find anything on pan evaporation does anybody have any tips on that ?

Also curious what his last post might've been like I say it's probably been three or four years since I saw a post from him

Perhaps what you are looking for is attached.  I'll also attach a copy paste of HayWilson's wisdom that I created, both short & long versions (120+ pages in the long one).

 

The short version I review every year before hay season to refresh the old memory. 

 

To get PE numbers for your area, consider using AWIS.com (it's free for the PE numbers BTW).

PS someday I need to glean a few of Vhaby (Vincent Haby) another treasure trove of wisdom.

After reading so many members comments on the great help Mr. Wilson has been, I wondered if his family would ever know the sentiment here.  I called the funeral home and told about Hay Talk and sent a link to this thread that will be forwarded to Hay Wilson's family.

Great quote from the man himself from a few years back.



Our daughter's, Father In Law died not long ago.
I stopped attending funerals Months ago, or even years ago. Don't plan to attend mine as I will not be there. Bill Wilson

That is 100% correct for those of Faith in God. Bill will have already vacated the premises....spiritually, and he will have ascended into Paradise.

Mr. Wilson's, "Universal Truths of Haymaking," is a very helpful guide. May he rest in peace.

I'm sorry nhbaler282, but Mr. Wilson is irreplaceable relative to his hay making knowledge.
