Storm clouds began to move into our area Wednesday afternoon, and the farmers had to rush to get their already cut hay baled before the rain.
After the hay is cut it is left in the fields to dry in the sun. An instrument to measure moisture content may be used to tell the farmer when the hay is dry enough to bale. Then the dry hay is raked into rows.
The baler follows the rake to gather up and compress the hay into round bales, and it wraps the bales in plastic. The plastic will protect the hay bales from the rain. The bales may be sold straight from the field or moved into storage to be sold later.
Happy Sky Watch Friday!
