Did you know to make dry hay you need 3-5 days of no rain and lower humidity? It can be very stressful when you think that you have a week of no rain in the forecast and then as soon as you cut hay, a stray shower pops up and you pray it misses your field.

Typically a schedule to make hay goes like this:

Day 1 - Cut hay and sometimes Tedd hay

Day 2 - Tedd hay (which means to fluff and spread out the hay, after the dew burns off)

Day 3 - Tedd and Rake Hay (flipping the hay and helping it dry)

Day 4 - Rake hay into Wind Rows (combining 2-3 rows into one for the baler)

Day 5 - Bale hay (machine bales hay into square or round bales and hay gets taken out of the field)

Here is the link to a video of the machine making square bales
