Green Gold

It’s time to make a deal on winter-time hay. Here is the hay I’m going to buy.

I’m getting 5 stacks (80 bales each). This is what the rest of it looks like:

 

 

When you scape away the outer sun-bleached leaves you see the green beneath. This is very fine-stemmed hay and there will be minimal waste when feeding. Sheep don’t like coarse hay and they leave a lot behind. At the price of hay this year, these stacks are like gold. The price of hay is a good reason to sell off excess sheep before the winter when I need to start feeding hay instead of pasture.

 

This the field where the hay was grown.

 

And here is a close-up of the plant when flowering.
