Working on my fourth cutting of hay today, and the bailer broke after 500 bales or so. It's the end of the season, and most of the tractor dealers have spare capacity in their service departments, so it's not the worst time to have a breakdown, but I still had 2 acres of raked hay to put up.
This is the last hay event I have this year. It's been a very good year for hay. Plenty of sun and long stretches that made haying easier than usual.
It's forecasted to rain in a few hours tonight. Nothing better than hearing the rain with all of the hay safe in the barn.
