We only have a couple acres of hay, and a horse and donkey. Buying decent hay around here is tough. All the guys that sell the stuff want to sell their rain damaged %#@&!!
Also, I am at the age that I need to spend some time on the BowFlex and walking machine, so I thought, Hmmmm,,,
Why not put up my own hay!!
Get some exercise, get some hay!! WOOT!! Win, Win!!
What I am looking for is ideas to improve my hay operation. I figured if I show you guys what I do, surely you could find the flaws in my system. So go ahead, recommend away!! I am open to all ideas, just, please, keep the ideas under $300, the wife says I ain't allowed to spend more than what the hay cost!!
My first "BowFlex" gets the hay cut.
We let the hay dry for a day or two. Sometimes if it is not hot enough, I will fluff it with my BowFlex hand rake. More exercise!!
This year, I added the "Graboid" hay rake!! WOOT!!, this puppy doubled our hay production!!
After the rows are raked, the piles are combined into mounds.
