National hay prices

Back in the old days, when I was young and crazy, I use to bale hay, straw and cornstalks 24 hours a day, 10 months a year. I would bale for 3 days and sleep a day. You know that might explain a few things today, 12 years later. I was told by a major baler manufacture that I was the largest custom round baler in the country. I’ve wore out many balers and swathers, sometimes doing 5000 acre jobs. National hay prices.

It’s not easy putting hay up right. I figure it’s like making fine wine. You have to get a feel for the right dew on the leaves. You have to cut it at the right stage to keep the protein high. And then if you’ve done that right all you have to worry about the weather. A small detail! Getting the hay swathed, baled and stacked between rains is the fun part.

A lot of our readers are wondering what hay prices are doing. A lot of the trucks I’ve sold end up with hay in the back someday. So why not post what hay and straw prices are doing in my neck of the woods. Hey,Hay,Hey,Hay!

Step Above trailer ladder. I’ve said it before, most folks don’t use their hay racks. Mainly because it’s too hard to get to. A big share of factory hay rack ladders don’t cut it. Too narrow, flimsy or just plain scary.Step Above is a slide-out aluminum ladder that makes the roof of your trailer an easy trip and safe. Having the right angle slanted away from the trailer takes the work out of climbing a ladder just like your step ladder you use around the house. Step Above slides out to the ground, just the right slope for climbing. More…

Introducing Horses By  Melissa Brawner One of my favorite things about having our farm, is that I get to introduce children to horses.  There is something magical about seeing a huge horse and a tiny child together.  It can be a bit scary for both the horse and the child initially, but the end result is worth every second of the work you put in to make it a safe, comfortable learning experience.  I remember myself as a horse crazy child.  In retrospect, I am sure I was quite a sight in my light green fuzzy bikini and cowboy boots running around on my imaginary steed in Phoenix, Arizona.  Horses were all I could think about. I can truly empathize with those horse crazy children!   More…
Introducing our horse editor, Melissa Brawner. Enjoy her educational articles sharing her experience raising horses in Colorado.The first article is about “Starting Foals.”“Beginning basic training sounds a bit extreme with a foal, but it is the simple things that are introduced.  Introducing things while they are young makes it much easier to train them when they are full grown, and ready for the saddle, or any other specialization. Practicing trailer loading at the side of the mare takes all of the fear out of the equation, unless of course you have a mare that won’t load!  The foal learns to…..

Hay and Straw. You asked. Hay is a green immature leafing plant, be it alfalfa, grass, oats, etc. Straw is a yellow mature mostly stem plant that has been harvested to remove the seeds, usually wheat, barley, oats, rice, beans etc. Straw has little feed value, used for bedding or sometimes mixed with hay to stretch supplies and provide bulk to feedlot rations. Though the plants used as straw can be used as hay if harvested as a green immature plant in the beginning dough stage. Cornstalks can used like straw. It soaks up more moisture than straw.
