Subject: RE: Baleage

Galena IL
We wrapped thousands of bales a year for over 30 years. Part of how I got my business to expand so fast in the early 1990s we saw with my own boys hay that have been rained on every day for 10 days from the time we cut it. We wrapped it on the 12th day. I put Inoculant the hay when I baled it and told the old boy it may or may not work but all he was out was what he paid me. He said you got that right I was going to hire you to chop it on the ground. That winter he wanted to know what one of them wrappers cost? He said all the cows want to eat is that rained on hay you made, they don’t like my good dry hay

The rain on your hay does not hurt you. What sometimes causes the problem is Raindrop splashes dirt up on the hair, dirt sometimes has bad bacteria. If your hay has only been down for one day and you don’t have Inoculant available I would still go ahead and bale it if you had the opportunity. It will probably be just fine. Dennis

Edit to add
Probably a third of the hay we wrap every year has had some rain on it.
