The hay fields are mostly WW B-Dahl old-world bluestem, which is drought resistant, does not require much nitrogen fertilization, and is very palatable to cattle. We also have some Coastal, which requires more nitrogen fertilizer but also produces more hay when fertilized. We are currently using dairy manure for fertilization, and may use hydrolyzed fish in the future.
Currently available hay is from the 2018 crop year as described below. All bales are 4×5 ft net-wrapped. All Certified Organic
- Fair to Good WW B-Dahl and Coastal. Harvested under irrigation during the summer of 2018. $70/bale, not including loading ($3/bale) and/or delivery (depends on distance).
