How many cuttings do you all normally get each year?

I thought you said you were dry? Looks like a big swath of Iowa is in pretty severe drought. Most people in my area only got 2 cuts on bermuda, and the second cut on fescue is only yielding 800ish pounds per acre. Pretty pathetic. Just this 1 little pocket in SW Missouri. No rain in the forecast, and I already culled 20% of the cows in July. I acted early so I won't be feeding hay early. 3 of 4 neighbors are feeding hay and the other has elected to let his tear the fences down or starve. Corn is getting chopped into silage. All the classic signs to know it's getting serious.

Yet everyday I hear about how Trump is causing record hurricanes... where is my moisture.

James, the hoop building is full these will be big rounds.

David, this is the fourth. Once we made a fifth cutting in October.

Rancher neighbor got his third cutting of alfalfa baled and off the field the other day. Has the pivot sprinkler going again. I think he might get a fourth. Or, he's watering it to turn his cattle out on it as he does every year.

It’s here in North Florida ! My yard is an uncuttable marsh at this point and there’s been little hay cut on the hay farm my friend gets his hay from. It’s going to be a real problem this winter to keep the horses and cows fed. Hay farmer usually cuts every couple weeks but can’t due to the rain every day.

I use too grow alfalfa and baled them in small square bales.

I miss the smell of it when cutting and baling and liked the rich green color.

They were hand picked up out of the field by me and that i don't miss.

If i start growing again i will go with the small round bales.

The money was good too.

I got 4 cuttings and never had much left in the barn.

At least I know where it is now. I thought I needed to start a thread to get the Texans to go out in the gulf and swim in circles, maybe jump start something. Lord knows we have enough Texans on the board to do it.

You guys that are talking about number of cuttings. What's your average rainfall? I figure Sam and Big Jim are getting 15 and 12 respectively, but I don't know exactly where they are. My corner of MO averages 43 inches.

LJ, we (hopefully)get one cutting on dryland alfalfa/grass.

Our straight alfalfa is all flood irrigated and depending on growing conditions we get 2 cuttings, maybe 3 if you are lucky.


Just checked our annual rainfall here for NE MT.

Right at 12"/year.
