Gourmet Horse Hay Producer
Only posting this here since there have been multiple threads with folks on the fence about going the preservative route or not. I abstained for years, just felt unnatural or something. However, bit the stick two years ago and got the 5 gal tote haygard applicator. Been a godsend for me this year. 1st cutting was really early due to funky weather and it made a difference in getting it baled a day early and before crummy weather. Same for second. Just did some third cutting. Humidity is sky high (65%), ground is damp from the hurricane remnant last week, and after 2.5 days of sun the western fire smoke haze has settled in and together with the humidity, would not have had a chance without the HG. Some hay was 12-13% but most was 16-20 so the pump just stayed on while in windrow. Have not had an issue with any bale this year at moisture levels that were "too high" or a "lot too high".
