With five consecutive dry days we were able to cut and bail our hay in good time this year. The grass has to be cut and then turned daily to ensure that the grass is dry before it is baled up into five foot round bales. If the hay is not sufficiently dry, it can heat up and possibly catch fire which could cause considerably damage to the building it is stored in. This grass is a mixture of rye grass and clover - the clover provides nitrogen which helps the grass to grow. After five days it is already growing quite fast.
