Those who didn't pass up the good weather and got their first hay cutting in were rewarded with great quality. I've tested a lot of first cuttings, and they are very, very good. However, a week like this past one with rain every day can really affect forage quality. My advice to those who waited and are cutting hay now, feed it to your heifers. Also, bunkers can really heat up in this kind of weather so be sure you keep bunker faces as tight as possible. The top layer is more prone to heat than the rest of the bunker. Chr. Hansen's Silosolve OS is a special silage inoculant that is sprayed on the top layer to help reduce molds and yeast. Biomax does a good job of keeping the heat of fermentation down during the ensiling process. Visit www.farmersco-opelevator.coop to learn more.
