If I had a lot more horses, or if I lived in South Dakota, it might be worth looking into. For me, I don't think that the extra labor would be worth the financial savings as compared to feeding round bales.

Unless I wasn't growing forage.....

Yeah, I think this is most advantageous for droughty places like South Dakota or other great plains states. I also think it will be easier in a drier climate than someplace like Georgia where the humidity is high. Mold is a challenge and that is probably most easily handled in drier climates.

I look forward to seeing if anyone else has input.

Cheers!

Apparently you guys don't realize that most of our hay is trucked south because we essentially have too much...

Yeah, we have gotten some of that ND hay and while some of it is very good, there has been some really poor CRP hay too. It is a kind of buyer beware situation as there have been trucks with good hay mixed with poor and recently one load was almost all thistle (ended up in Wyoming apparently). It is the inconsistency in hay (in part) that is making us look at hydroponics. Plus it sounds kind of fun. :)

Cheers!
