Anyone else's very thin this year? I think the extreme cold and longer than normal winter stunted its growth. The field behind my house made 54 on the first cut last year. This year made 28

Very thick around here, but 1st cut is late due to all the rain.

I'm glad its turned out good for y'all. All the farms next to me are coming up short too. One buddy has 2 Bermuda fields that took a bad beating. It appears to be worse in low laying areas

Don't know how it is but went to Waverly today to see my dad and it seems every other field was getting cut, raked, or baled. Saw what I think was a tiny fawn trying to run across one.

Dads burned up. Too much rain and not able to get in the fields and it's just thin and the tips are gone.

That's what we are seeing too. I cut 30 acres this morning and had to skip the low spots because water was standing. They are calling for storms this weekend so this is our only window. The spots I left will just get cut on the 2nd cutting. I'm just worried if we have a drought after a weak first cut their will be a shortage

It was thin early but good quality. But now it has thickened up with all the rain it has caused good under growth. There has been a little winter kill in the bermuda and alf-alfa.

Not good around here. Late spring and very little rain. Probably won't even be a second cutting.

Anybody heard how much its going for this year? By my figures I have $40 bucks per roll in what I got so far 5x6 rolls. That would get ugly fast if a man had to buy it at that rate

that's high. at 40 bucks a roll, you should graze it and buy your hay at 25-30 a roll nd save your diesel fuel

Yep. Normally this field produces 50-55 rolls. Only got 28 this year. Which is why my cost shot up. I cut some yesterday that I hope produces better

What we fertilized was excellent. The stuff that saw no fertilizer is sad thin.

We had one window in may and didn't get to cut it. Now our first cutting is terrible. Be lucky to get 1 good cutting this year \:\(
