Wet hay is a very bad thing. Its our second cutting of hay and we had it done in square bales this time and it was all going pretty well until it rained this morning--and looks like its going to rain off and on all night. For us it means making tepees out of hay bales so they air out and dry again or suffer the consequence of ruined hay. Like 100 + bales of ruined hay. At $3.00 a bale that's money lost. Not to mention, what do you do with that many bales of bad hay? I guess it could be mulch for our orchard but we still have about 10 round bales left from the first cut that are needing to be used up or sold. Did I mention that we suck at selling hay? I'm thinking of asking my DH to let me handle the business of hay since I'm more available than he is in the hopes that we can do a better job of selling it off when the time comes.
