Every summer we produce an average of 375 to 400 tons (11,000 bales) of grass and grass/alfalfa hay from large irrigated fields. The grass is a mixture of orchard grass, brome grass, and timothy. Although we need a considerable amount for our own livestock we always have extra for sale. Our hay is kept in large haybarns or outside in covered stacks until sold.
After the hay is baled we use a machine that bands 21 small bales together. The bundles are solid and self supporting, quick and easy to move, ideal for hauling on flat beds, in van trailers, or in the back of a pickup truck. The bales weigh between 60 and 70 pounds and a bundle will weigh between 1260 to 1470 pounds. We can load your trailer or flatbed in a very short time.
We do all of our own cutting, baling, and stacking so we can control the quality from start to finish. We have to work with Mother nature and always strive to put up all our hay just at the right time and in the right way.
