Watch moisture levels in hay

-A A +A
By Rick Greenwell

Last year was a challenging year for even our experienced hay producers relative to baling and storage moisture. We experienced several hay fires, along with lower quality as a result of excessive heating caused by baling at higher than safe moisture. When the internal temperature of hay rises above 130 degrees Fahrenheit, problems arise that will initially lead to lower quality and possibly spontaneous combustion. All hay baled above 15 percent moisture and above will show some increase in temperature for the first couple weeks after baling.
