West Central Iowa
Shortage of decent hay. What hay was made was put up good, but most guys were looking at 20-40% less on the first few cuttings. I didn't even take a third cutting of alfalfa as there wasn't enough to make it worth the time/fuel. Opening up CRP acres added tons, but of poorer quality.
Will be bagging silage for a guy this week who said his entire 2020 hay crop will be fed up before the end of September.....when he usually doesn't even begin feeding until November.
