The Big Trade Off

Many factors influence the quality of your hay and the health of your bottom line. Chief among them is how to strike the right balance between forage quality and yield. University of California Alfalfa and Forage Specialist Dan Putnam explains how to determine what’s best for your operation.

Residue: How Much is Too Much

It’s a rare thing when one can actually generate revenue from something that was once considered a nuisance or, worse, harmful. Today, what was an anomaly is becoming a reality for many producers, as they’re able to sell their excess harvest residue. Check out tips from the experts on how to create the potential for increased yields, as well as earn a little extra revenue.

Revolutionary Baler Rating System

In a market segment in which model numbers and manufacturer options change frequently, finding which baler is right for each operation can be difficult. The new—and easy to use—rating system from Hesston by Massey Ferguson takes the guesswork out of the buying process. Learn more about it and how it can help you purchase new balers or better understand the capabilities of those you already have.
