Do you know where your cowboy will be?

While I’m sawing logs, mine will be baling hay.

He waits until the dew is just right on his already 80 acres of cut hay and then bales it into round bales. Being on top of the moisture measurement prevents mildewed hay. Round bales do best to keep mildew at it’s lowest but some ranchers make square bales. Those are best for stacking and transporting for selling.

I’ll take him some lunch mid-morning. I might find him sleeping in the tractor. I’ll keep you posted.

*Yawn*
