1st Cutting 2020

May 27th, 2020

We will finish baling 1st cutting today.  Like everyone else in the Columbia Basin, our fields were rained on after they were cut.  We will be discounting this cutting $40/ton.  It is $210/ton or $10/bale, 10 bale minimum.

2nd cutting should be ready around the end of June.

Field Cut-in!

May 9th, 2020

Today we are doing field cut-in.  We cut where the pivot will set while we are cutting and the edges of the fields so we can make large continuous cuts of the main fields.

The fields look outstanding!  Deep green, thick and lush.

It’s time!

It’s time for 1st cutting!  We’ve cut irrigation and now we wait for the fields to dry to begin cutting.

We decided to send our upcoming 3rd generation hay specialists into the fields to check the quality of the stand.  They were happy with what they saw!
