Cutting haylage 2018

The weather has been so amazing the last few weeks, the grass has grown so much, that we can already cut our first haylage for the winter. As we don’t have any rye grass, only meadow grass, there are a lot of different flowers etc growing in the grass. Our sheep certainly like eating this over the winter months…

We cut the first of 5 sections a couple of days ago, cut grass always smells so good. Sun has been drying this very quickly as well.

Today we baled the grass into our small round bales, easy to handle. Just finished wrapping as well, was nice and easy work, as all the bales were neat and tidy so wrapping without problems.
