Please click on this link Alfalfa Harvest Alert May 15 to get updated information for the May 15 sampling, along with data from previous sampling dated.
I expect to see more lab reports on Tuesday; and will aim to update the PDF document here in this posting – late in the day or early evening.
It looks like most fields made pretty good use of sunshine and warmer weather at the end of last week and Sunday.
We will likely be primarily watching the weather more than anything else before long. We are moving into the 4th week of May next week. Past experience with the your crop, your land, and your feed resources count a lot. Plan for a SAFE hay crop harvest.
In cooperation with the Central Minnesota Forage Council, and cooperating farmers, agribusiness sponsors and cooperators - listed in the report. THANKS.
