5th cutting of alfalfa

September 5, 2012

Somehow, in the worst drought for our part of Iowa in 50 years, Bob made five cuttings of alfalfa. The last bales went in the barn after dark last night. Each cutting got smaller and smaller as the summer went on, but the quality was top notch. Our ewes will enjoy these nutritious green flakes of forage at lambing next spring.
