We caught a window of dry enough weather to cut and bale our first cutting of alfalfa for haylage. This is the first crop of alfalfa we have had in years. We generally cut ryegrass this early to make our haylage. We expect we will have to make haylage out of the second cutting as well. Our springs are usually way too wet for curing about any hay crop so the haylage process is a must for us to capture as much quality as possible.
We are blessed to be caretakers of God’s creation. We strive daily to be efficient producers of food for a needy world. Every day is Earth Day on our farm. We have set aside about 70 acres of our place as buffer zones for creeks with about 20 acres of young pecan trees.
