I am writing this blog to answer a question posted by a reader. The comment was wondering if our ranch used a moisture tester to indicate whether the hay was ready or not.
On our ranch we do not use a moisture tester. After making hay for fifty years my dad has it down to his own science. He can look at the hay, grab a handful and know whether he can bale or not. He has now passed this expertise onto me. However, this question made us want to research moisture more and lead us to find this article. Here is the link, check it out if you are interested on moisture testing hay.
We were super excited to have a question from a reader, that is our object in creating this blog. We hope for our blog to become more interactive in the future, so if you have any questions, just ask!
Thanks for reading!
