Putting Up Hay

Yesterday, Luke, Matt & I continued the work of putting up our hay. The tractor, baler, rake & mower are finally all working at the same time and we are starting to make progress (now that its the end of August!). The only problem we had was when the hay wagon was stacked high and the axel broke as we were pulling it to the barn. Its always something! Luke & Matt did a great job bucking bales and stacking them higher than I could ever throw a bale. Luke & I finished baling the alfalfa today and stacked that hay also. All in all, we now have about 550 small bales and 9 round bales. We still have almost 20 acres to cut & bale but hopefully we can get someone with a round baler to finish it for us. Square bales are a heck of a lot of work!
