today I sold the hay, all of it off the 2 fields. BEFORE I even got to round baling it. Matter of fact friend said he would round bale it. He said his pastures are dry and not growing fast enough to keep up with his beef herds grazing them, been feeding what he's already baled this year.... so is worried about having enough hay for coming winter. Saved me about 2 days work, baling then transporting out of fields.... Yeild was approx 75 4x5 ' round bales...about 1250>1400 pound bales. YEAAA!!!! But still have another 30 or so acres to do for round bales.
