Its a busy time in Kansas, the county fairs are winding down and we are getting geared up for the State Fair! AND its Haying Season, brome, alfalfa, prairie and more.
What better way to see a glimpse of haying than that which is taking place in "The Hay Capital of the World!" Yes, that is a place and no its not a made up title. Learn a little more about The Hay Capital from my previous blog post here.
To learn more about native/prairie hay and its nutritional value, check out this handy publication from University of Missouri Extension. While the publication can be a little technical at times it is great at describing how to make great hay!
Mowing the last 80 acres of the year. Hay shown in this video is Prairie.
