Our field was leased for a good many years and was planted each year with either corn or soybeans. Fast forward....We dropped the lease and are making our own hay. So last year we plowed & disked and planted around 3 acres with a pasture mix. It was mostly grasses: timothy, rye, fescue and orchard with some red clover. So this year we were looking forward to our first "homegrown" field. Welllll, it looks like all red clover!! There are a few sparse pieces of grass, but it's definatly clover. Sooo, 4 questions: 1. How is clover hay? Can mules, cows, goats, horses have that as their staple hay? Would it be too rich? 2. We have an old NI cutter bar, an old pull behind rake, and a NH 65 baler. Will this work, or do really need to look into a haybine? 3. How long does clover hay usually take to dry? (Western PA) 4. Where the heck did the grasses go?! Why all clover?!
