This field, closest to the house, has an alfalfa and grass mixture. The grass is a teensy bit older than we'd like but the alfalfa portion is perfect.
Raking it into windrows
Three full wagons - about 375 bales of the 960 that came off this field

One unexpected wrinkle is that the 1066 tractor needs to go to the dealer's for repairs. A while ago they installed a new fuel injector pump and ever since it's been lacking power when under a load. Turns out those pumps should really be replaced at a dealership so they can put the tractor on a dynamometer to make sure the timing is correct. It would have been nice to know that before they put it in.
Anyway, the trailer came this morning to fetch it.
Andy drives it on.....
Chains are secured front, back and sideways, then the driver asks about a possible shortcut to another place he has to go.
Off it goes, and hopefully it will come back soon and working properly. We're not looking forward to the bill, but machinery has to work.
Back to work for us. We're burning daylight and there's still twelve hours to put to good use.
