@AR_ranchhand all we have left is about 100 ac to cut, should be done 1st cut in a week, maybe a bit more #haytalkJoe Dickenson
@haytalk I'll be lurking, in and out tonight. Working on a couple of projects right now but wanted to say hello. :) #HayTalkHorse Family™
Hey @MikeNvusa hope you can get that hay up tomorrow. How do expect the first cutting to yield? #haytalkRyan Goodman
@Dickensonfarms I never even thought about border issues. Hope you can get it alright. #haytalkHayTalk.com
@horsefamilymag Thanks for joining! Anything fun events coming up in your neck of the woods? #haytalkHayTalk.com
What type of yields is everyone seeing on their hay crops? #haytalkErica Beck
@Dickensonfarms My dad hasn't had much time for hay, everyone has been selling cattle in Arkansas, drought hitting hard and early #haytalkRyan Goodman
@haytalk I was told it shouldn't be an issue, but there was serious lack of options for Cdns and shipping was pricey #haytalkJoe Dickenson
@PNWrancher grasses matured earlier this year with mild winter, warm early spring. Quality may be up a bit, but yields are down #haytalkRyan Goodman
@haytalk Online events, yes. Planning a big Twitter party for next month. :) #HayTalkHorse Family™
Just came back from a meeting of Arkansas. Grapes are looking good! #grape growers #haytalkAnitra Fay
@AR_ranchhand ouch! Sorry to hear that. Thankfully we have really heavy clay ground and the high humidity helps us too #haytalkJoe Dickenson
@AR_ranchhand Yields are way down in sw Iowa as well. Supply is going to be a real issue with some hard decisions to make, I think. #haytalkErica Beck
@fayvineyards we can always use a good grape crop! Guess warmer weather is good for them? #haytalkRyan Goodman
Missing #haytalk again. I was hoping to make my first one tonight but cutting wheat instead...Jeremy
@horsefamilymag Twitter party about? #haytalkHayTalk.com

@AR_ranchhand @cowboynchrist good luck on that, wheat is hard to rid here #harvest12 #haytalkJoe Dickenson
@_codymcdaniel A lil dry here in TN. Praying for rain in Arkansas. Need a few weeks worth back home #haytalkRyan Goodman
@AR_ranchhand This dry weather seems to cover such a large area in the US. #haytalkcody mcdaniel
Well that's not good. Was hoping other folks were having better hay seasons. #haytalkErica Beck
@AR_ranchhand Warm weather is fine, but some rain would be nice! #haytalkAnitra Fay
RT @horsefamilymag: @cowboynchrist Sorry you'll be missing it, hope everything goes great with the wheat cutting! #HayTalkDay Rose
@PNWrancher our 2nd year stands are pretty light. Older stands are yielding well #haytalkJoe Dickenson
@PNWrancher No it's quite awful actually. The mild spring and then sudden cold snap didn't help matters and now we have drought. #haytalkJesse Bussard
Does anyone have any summer events coming up? Anything to invite community to learn about food or #Ag? #haytalk #ranchlifeHayTalk.com

@NateJaeger That's the consensus from many across the country I've talked with. @horsefamilymag @pnwrancher @AR_ranchhand #haytalkJesse Bussard
@AR_ranchhand Wow, excuse me while I puke. Doesn't look good for us either. #haytalkcody mcdaniel

RT @horsefamilymag: RT @PNWrancher: What type of yields is everyone seeing on their hay crops? #HayTalkAlex DeLuca
@cowgirljesse our guys think its b/c of the warm weather. Winter annuals played out early. #haytalkNate Jaeger
@cowgirljesse the plan is, see where th beef is produced, then eat it and raise money for a local charity #haytalkJoe Dickenson
#haytalk local Strawberry festival coming up, also antique tractor ride, and will try to squeeze in some fishing and BBQing before gets hotPaul Hortenstine
@cowgirljesse All berry pies are great. Preference leans towards strawberry and raspberry here :) #haytalkHolistic Mgmt. Int'l
@AR_ranchhand Yields are running 25%-40% less than last year in this area.I will be able to have better idea when balers hit field #haytalkMike Compston
@NateJaeger I wrote about the decreased hay yields last week in my #Beef Producer blog post: http://farmprogress.com/beef-producer-blogs-hay-yields-forage-decrease-a... #haytalkJesse Bussard

@hminternational @cowgirljesse Did someone say pies? :) :) #HayTalkHorse Family™
@Dickensonfarms That's a fantastic idea! Is it a grass-fed beef farm? #haytalkJesse Bussard
@NateJaeger Same thing that happened here in TN. Some folks waited too long to cut hay, maturity was high. #haytalkRyan Goodman
@hminternational My mama makes a mean 3-berry pie (blueberry, raspberry, blackberry combo). #haytalkJesse Bussard
@MikeNvusa hoping for the best. #haytalkRyan Goodman
@cowgirljesse thanks! Its grass based, they get a bit of corn, but its far from corn fed and done on rotational pasture #haytalkJoe Dickenson
@PaulHortenstine Strawberry festivals past in Arkansas. Hot weather came at beginning of May. #haytalkRyan Goodman
#Agchat Are you preparing for the summer heat? In intense heat areas what do you like to do to keep your livestock happy? #haytalkHolistic Mgmt. Int'l
I spent the past week at home in PA on the farm. Temps never got above 70. It was great weather but rained a lot. #haytalkJesse Bussard
#haytalk hope you are all taking pics of your haying and other farm/ranch jobs. In my day we were just working, and nobody took pics, regretPaul Hortenstine
Stepfather is mowing hay down tonight. They'll be finishing up last of 1st cutting this weekend. #haytalkJesse Bussard
Had to step out, 2 ferrel dogs in field with ewes and lambs. People dumping dogs in rural areas, can't afford to fed them Problems #haytalkMike Compston

I dropped the front end of my tractor in an abandoned well. http://bit.ly/jDObDa #haytalkErica Beck
But it only happened once. I did run the wheel off my rake twice. I was an all-star...? #haytalkErica Beck
Once when I was cutting hay, was unclogging mower (operator error) only to find I was sitting on (literally ON) a rattle snake #haytalkRyan Goodman
I popped a wheelie on the tractor while I was raking hay after hitting a landmine of groundhog holes! I almost flew outta the seat! #haytalkJesse Bussard
@AR_ranchhand EEP. Was it alive? I would have freaked to high heavens. #haytalkErica Beck
@cowgirljesse my sis @bdickenson baled a turtle. I've found fair debris from maintaining the parkinglot at the fairgrounds #haytalkJoe Dickenson
Ouch! RT @pnwrancher: I dropped the front end of my tractor in an abandoned well. http://bit.ly/jDObDa #haytalkHayTalk.com
Fae from #Hay & #Forage Grower: A year or so ago a reader emailed photo of a raccoon baled - and living. #haytalkHay & Forage Grower
Always finding balloons in hay bales. City folk wonder where their balloons go - right into our pastures. #haytalkRyan Goodman
@Dickensonfarms Poor turtle. That's a strange one for sure. @bdickenson #haytalkJesse Bussard
@hayandforage A live raccoon! Yikes! #haytalkJesse Bussard
@AR_ranchhand So that's where balloons go! LOL #haytalkJesse Bussard
@PNWrancher Let's just say once I figured out it was a snake, I jumped up faster than I knew I could and took a while to come down #haytalkRyan Goodman
@cowgirljesse @bdickenson her dog loved it, it was his big, natural frisbee #haytalkJoe Dickenson
@hayandforage Yikes! That coon was lucky to still be alive. I've mowed over a fawn before, unfortunately wasn't so lucky #haytalkRyan Goodman
@AR_ranchhand @PNWrancher And they say white boys can't jump. Just show Ryan a snake! :) #haytalkJesse Bussard
If I ever hear a kid ask where his balloon is going after he lets go, I'm telling him it went into Ryan's hayfield. #haytalkErica Beck
RT @PNWrancher: If I ever hear a kid ask where his balloon is going after he lets go, I'm telling him it went into Ryan's hayfield. #haytalkJesse Bussard
@cowgirljesse That sound great! You have a talented mama! #haytalkHolistic Mgmt. Int'l
These stories @PaulHortenstine would definitely make some good blog posts. @PNWRancher just shared a good one #haytalkRyan Goodman
@horsefamilymag Yes we were talking about berry pies. What is your favorite? #HayTalkHolistic Mgmt. Int'l
#Haytalk then there is climbing up back of rack that broke. Landed under about a dozen bales.Paul Hortenstine
@cowgirljesse @PNWrancher It's the truth. Birthday balloons, baby celebrations, all sorts of colors. #haytalkRyan Goodman
RT @cowgirljesse: @AR_ranchhand @PNWrancher And they say white boys can't jump. Just show Ryan a snake! :) #haytalkJoe Dickenson
@cowgirljesse Let's not make any habits of sending pics of snakes. That event took a few years off my life #haytalkRyan Goodman
@MikeNvusa We had to chase feral boar out of the vineyard today. #haytalk #NOTboringlivinginthecountryAnitra Fay
We were checking the hay once and a live skunk was sleeping under the wind row that's the fastest I've ever seen my uncle run #haytalkRyan A
@AR_ranchhand Would have been better than the fawn lived than a raccoon! #haytalkHay & Forage Grower
@cowgirljesse Hahaha, love it! I have a crazy-good vertical for a short girl when there's a snake underneath me. @AR_ranchhand #haytalkErica Beck
@cowgirljesse For a bit. Time is always short at the end of a day. :) #haytalkHolistic Mgmt. Int'l
#Haytalk lots of snakes but a couple of skunks created a stir.Paul Hortenstine
@AR_ranchhand @PNWrancher I've never once found a balloon in a hay field or bale. Must be an Arkansas thing... #haytalkJesse Bussard
@cowgirljesse Nope, found em in Colorado Springs pastures too #haytalkRyan Goodman
@AR_ranchhand Lol, must be a "Ryan thing" then :) #haytalkJesse Bussard
@10ptbuck17 My dog is always toying with skunks on my runs. Makes me run a lil faster too #haytalkRyan Goodman
Best forage story I have (I think) was the one where I tripped over a coon when I was building fence. We both yelled and bolted #haytalkJoe Dickenson
@fayvineyards That will have to be checked into. Some people keep them a trade secret ;) #haytalkHolistic Mgmt. Int'l
I suppose all have seen the guy who baled himself? Warning: he's naked. http://bit.ly/f9qmFF #haytalkHay & Forage Grower
LOL Yes! RT @hayandforage: I suppose all have seen the guy who baled himself? Warning: he's naked. http://bit.ly/f9qmFF #haytalkJesse Bussard
@AR_ranchhand No rattlesnake pics? Too bad-snapped a great one in an AZ parking lot this spring... #HaytalkHay & Forage Grower
#Haytalk had a deep well under windmill. You could see rust particles and it had a strong taste, but was it ever good when putting up hay.Paul Hortenstine
@fayvineyards feral hogs are bad about tearing up pastures. Ripped up some fields I was cutting in Grant County once. #haytalkRyan Goodman
@cowgirljesse @AR_ranchhand @PNWrancher found 'em here too, #haytalkJoe Dickenson
@hayandforage Lol, don't send to @AR_ranchhand He's a little squeamish about snakes. #haytalkJesse Bussard
Ha, not something I'd recommend RT @hayandforage: I suppose all have seen the guy who baled himself? http://bit.ly/f9qmFF #haytalkRyan Goodman
@Dickensonfarms See I knew I wasn't the only one. @cowgirljesse just needs to search a few more bales :) #haytalkRyan Goodman
@AR_ranchhand @cowgirljesse We are talking children balloons, right? Because hot air balloons? You'd be digging that out for years. #haytalkErica Beck
@clamitch @AR_ranchhand In PA we had rattlesnakes, copperheads, and water mocassins to deal with. #haytalk #snakesJesse Bussard
@AR_ranchhand I wouldn't believe it if it weren't videotaped. Who would even want to video that? #haytalkHay & Forage Grower
@Dickensonfarms I've found a few skunks, coons, and even squirrels and fish in irrigation pipes before. NOT fun task to clear out #haytalkRyan Goodman
@AR_ranchhand @cowgirljesse yup had to back y'up on that one Ryan. Brigden Fairgrounds is great for 'em #haytalkJoe Dickenson
@PNWrancher OH yeah, small balloons. Though I have seen a few hot air balloons fly over the farm before #haytalkRyan Goodman
#Haytalk goodnight all on the move will lose uPaul Hortenstine
@AR_ranchhand Thanks for sending drought forecast. I'm puking with @_codymcdaniel #haytalkAnitra Fay
@AR_ranchhand I bet. We don't irrigate here, except for high value crops, so I just have to bring Jack on my fencing tours #haytalkJoe Dickenson
Anyone use donkeys to protect grazing cattle from wild dogs? I met a MO backgrounder who did. Hadn't heard of that before. #haytalkHay & Forage Grower
@fayvineyards It's gonna be a rough one. Preparing now to better handle what could be ahead. @_codymcdaniel #drought #haytalkRyan Goodman
@hayandforage Yes, @jrfarms has 4 donkeys in w/ his sheep herd. #haytalkJesse Bussard
@cowgirljesse That would be the best avenue. The side effects are not ones that are beneficial to your livestock. #haytalkHolistic Mgmt. Int'l
@hminternational Oh I know that very well. My MS thesis is focused on the physiological effects of fescue toxicosis on cattle. #haytalkJesse Bussard
@hayandforage We've had donkeys with our cattle for years. I'd say they run off the dogs/coyotes, but some are just lazy #haytalkRyan Goodman
@cowgirljesse Thanks! I can see it would work with sheep! #haytalkHay & Forage Grower
@hayandforage I've known some folks that used llamas w/ their goats as well. #haytalkJesse Bussard
@AR_ranchhand @cowgirljesse You'd probably notice a hot air balloon before baling it up. I'd hope. #haytalkErica Beck
