I am a Hay Snob

I have to admit it: I am a Hay Snob. The truth is out.  I am so picky about the food our animals eat.  It takes me about a half hour every other day to measure and mix the food our dairy cows eat.  We do not feed commercial mixes to any of our animals.  Even the duck food is mixed in small batches at a local feed mill.  I hunt out the best hay we can get in this area, which unfortunately these days is shipped in because we have had two bad hay years in a row and good hay is simply not available in this area where most fields are now planted in the perpetual cycle of wheat, corn and soy. I do not have much control over where the hay comes from, but I can make sure our animals are getting the best possible hay we can buy.  It is getting progressively more expensive too.

Until later …
