This year we have been blessed by abundant rain and the result of that rain is an amazing hay crop that we are right in the middle of harvesting. Before the rain we fertilized the fields and killed the winter grass and weeds. Then, we cut the hay, rake it into windrows and then let it cure properly in the sun. It has to be dry before we bail it. We don’t have final numbers yet, but this will surely be a record year for hay production at the Double Heart Ranch.
