Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The art of making hay is as old as farming itself, and even today, no matter how sophisticated the machinery, it evokes the connection of a person to the land. For anyone undertaking the task of making hay for the first time or if you have a few haying seasons under your belt, Small-Scale Haymaking takes you through every step of the process. From plowing and planting the field to cutting, baling, and storing the hay, author Spencer Yost explains what to do, citing examples and describing situations from his own experience as a hay farmer.

Information about buying and maintaining all types of haying equipment is covered in this book, as well as developing a farm plan for the future. Practical advice and step-by-step instructions will help first-time and veteran hay farmers through the entire haying process to where they can sit back and admire, with pride, a bare hay field and a full hay mow.
