Frost on the fields!

November 17th, 2021

Brrr!  There’s frost on the fields this morning.  We had our first heavy frost during the night.  Current temperature is 25 with  a wind chill of 20.  We’ve received nearly an inch of rain during the past week.  The final leaves were blown off the trees with the wind and 50 mph gusts a couple of days ago.  Winter is approaching.

Feeding the fields

September 23rd, 2021

Today we applied phosphorus to our fields.  Phosphorus (P) is very important for good root development.  Phosphorus moves slowly in soil under most conditions; therefore, applying fertilizers during this time allows the P to move into the soil through winter freeze/thaw processes and rain/snowmelt where it can be taken up by the fine branch roots near the soil surface.

Applying the proper amount of fertilizer at the appropriate time strengthens the plants making them more resistant to drought and able to grow to their potential.

Our 3rd generation hay farmers are only 3, 4 and 5 years old but they’re already excited about visiting the farm implement dealership to look at equipment! Point to any piece of haying equipment and they will tell you what it’s called and what to do with it!  They’re already “helping” repair equipment, too!
