Making Hay (and Straw) Bales

 This guy thinks that the pasture is always green.
 But Cattleman Jim knows better.
 It's hard enough to keep the cows on green grass in the Summertime.
Soon Summer will fade and the green grass will be gone. 
 So we are dropping barley and wheat straw.
And baling hay. 
It's been a dry Summer for cattle. 
 We need two or three crops of alfalfa to bring in sufficient hay. That will be unlikely this year.
 Although we have had some timely rains, the hay land and pastures are dry.
 CRP will be available for haying after the first of August.  
Great news for everyone in GriggsDakota
