Watering at the right time, for the correct interval.
(Flood Irrigating...12 hours a setting)
(When a purple sheen can across the top of the hay can be seen.)
Ours is not quite ready another week most likely.
Letting it dry just enough so it can be baled at the right time.
And removing it from the field in a timely matter so the watering schedule is back on track.
Which in turn results into farmers being up at unseemly hours putting their hay up.
So when a crazy farmer heads out the door and starts his tractor up at midnight.
That is why.
The hay is at its optimum point of being cut or baled.
Poor hay quality which equals poor nutritional value.
Which means the animals that eat the hay won't get the nourishment they need.
Either for the fact that you grow it and sell it.
Or for the fact that you grow it and use it yourself.
It is important to get the hay up done at the right time.
