Ed found a barn floor near Midfield. This will save a lot of hot summer work moving pallets around; we'll stack the square bales on these gently used oilfield "mats".

Better Baling in Wet Weather

Ed tested some AGCO hay preservative on the February alfalfa cutting. He hoped it might be helpful for keeping mold out of the bales in future cuttings when the windrow moisture content would be a little high and he might be forced to bale anyway due to weather conditions or time constraints.

The climate of coastal Southeast Texas isn't always ideal for drying hay. High humidity year-round and cold weather in the winter equate to slow drying times and less-than-ideal baling conditions.

The preservative has the same buffered acid combination used by grocery chains to keep mold out of our food products. It worked pretty well for a first application. Ed will try it again the next time he's stuck baling at slightly high moisture levels.

We're fighting pests even in the winter garden.
