An old phrase is relevant to the process, Make Hay while the Sun Shines. The process requires that the particluar grass or legume must be air dried after cutting and before …baling or loose storage to prevent mold. If a shower should come through between the cutting process and the baling, the hay must be re-raked and allowed to dry out completely before baling can begin again. Excess raking reduces the value of the hay because each time that it is turned, a certain amount of the desireable leaf content is lost. If after baling, a rain-storm catches the bales in the field before protective storage is found, the bales may require individual turning and drying time before the storage process can begin again. That in turn has increased the farmer's labor cost and reduced the quality of the product..

In the last fifty years it has lost 95 percent of it's value. I recall when gasoline was twenty five cents a gallon. Diesel was fifteen cents. No, the prices haven't risen - actually. Back then, I could take a silver dollar and buy 4 gallons of gas... Now that silver dollar will get you over nine (9) gallons. A paper dollar will get you less than a third of a gallon. Who's fault is this?? The federal reserve. VOTE RON PAUL. (MORE)

You should also feed by bodyweight 1% to 3%, feeding by the flake and scoop method is incorrect and doesn't provide the needed nutrients in the right amounts. Using the slow feed method also helps to prevent ulcers, stable vices, and other undesirable behaviours. (MORE)
