2010 was generally a good hay production year. We had a good growing season with timely rains. The kind of environment we had last summer allows for good harvest conditions. But then came September and a lot of wet weather. Many of our round bales that were stored outside without a lot of cover ended up with excessive rain that maybe left at least the bottom part of the bales standing in water and with the onset of very cold weather in November saw many of the bales frozen to the ground.
