Last summer was a bad year for grass hay. We got one cutting of hay from the pasture. I did get more cuttings from the alfalfa in the waterways, but that is a small area. I started the winter with about enough hay to get me through March. Then I knew there was some I could buy if I ran out.
Well, my barn is empty.
It takes a lot of food to keep these moms healthy and producing a lot of milk.
I’m feeding Sugar enough for two goats right now.
I went to get some of the good alfalfa hay that my ex-brother-in-law was storing in my building. It was gross. It was sitting on the concrete floor, and that draws moisture. There goes the hundred bales I was going to buy. I did manage to get him to sell me forty bales.
I really need a good year to completely fill my barn with hay.
