Hay Productivity:

4 Large Valley-8000 Series pivots support over 225 acres of center pivot irrigated hay meadows

Each field can usually produce 5 cuttings per year with hay yields from 70-120 sq bales to the acre per cutting.

Hay is moved to two hay storage barns totaling over 21,000 sq. ft. (50140 and 100140) which can hold over 40,000 sq. bales.

Bale production is highly automated with the use of a bale bundler limiting the labor required to maximize profitability and handling ease.

Weeds are sprayed as needed and an annual application of Medina Soil activator and molasses enhance the soil to maintain its performance.

All hay equipment and inventory is available for sale.
