A Bumper Hay Crop!

Our farm was blessed with a bountiful hay crop this year!

Even though our area has received little rain, we have had plenty of irrigation water for our fields. The grass was tall and lush.

We had a total of 573 small square bales ...

... and 94 large round bales.

We had excellent hay baling weather... hot and dry!

Ben and his friend Steve used our bale wagon to pick up the small square bales.
The bale wagon saved us the back-breaking work of picking all the hay up by hand.

Ben worked hard to get the bales off the field and stack them in our hay yard. 

 Stacking the hay.

Our hay crop was so large we will be able to sell our surplus to area farmers who are in need of extra hay.
