    Yup, the alfalfa around the house is , IMO, ruined. Got rained on a day after cutting, abundant, and again yesterday. It's the 5th year of this field, so it's already not very good....but he's the only one around here who was in such a hurry.

    Geez... rain on the first cutting (panic) price goes up..dang it! We have had little to no rain here but it will hurt in the long run. Not that you guys have had a lot, I heard the grass was getting crispy and they have shipped cattle out that usually don't get shipped until later this month or the next.

    Well, don't panic just yet. Santez ( the biggest dairy in town) was a little early. Tried to cut before bloom. The others around cut just before the second rain, maybe 12 hours before 2 hours of morning drizzle. So it shouldn't have done much. This field here is only 60 acres. Oat and 3way is still standing everywhere.

    LOL! I know... I am sure it's fine, but it was the early panic rumor tearing through the country side.. I think hay farmers could be just as dramatic as any TV reality star ...tee he :)

    I do like the different forage pellets they offer.
    I was thinking of you too, when I checked that out. Would just have to add fat. They do carry ricebran. Maybe worth looking into.
    Plus, I'm all for supporting local

    REally...$50 for 250lb barrel? It doesn't say prices on that site and I'm wondering if I can go pick it up from somewhere? I would basically use it as a filler (soaker upper) feed for the fat and vit e etc.

    50 is what my newly discovered feedstore charges. I'd call the mill and find out who sells it in your area. They also have 50 lb bags, 12.50, I think. It could partially replace hay even. They sponsor an endurance rider. She uses it instead of haypellets and other stuff during rides, the only thing her horses eat on a ride. She did the Tevis last year, and did a 2000 mile ride with two horses, and they looked darn good.
