This past weekend I got to sit in a big green tractor with a very handsome cowboy, and rake hay. The field had already been raked once, but because it’s South Dakota and we have wind, more often than not, the windrows were ruined due to high wind.
The coolest part of our little haying operation is that it’s John Deere Central on this here ranch. If it isn’t green we don’t use it. And even though our skidsteer isn’t green, it’s still a John Deere.
If you didn’t read my first blog on haying you should do that now. Otherwise, continue on.
We went all big guns, and instead of borrowing a cup of sugar from the neighbor, we borrowed this:
Oh yes! A forty foot V-rake. You can’t even see both sides in the picture it’s THAT big. We used this rake because it allowed us to put two of the now messy, windrows together.
The baler and Bud, came in right behind us:
And you can see in this photo the big rows of hay. Be sure you look in the rearview!
And that’s just another day in the life of this South Dakota Cowgirl!
