Description

Hay is an incredibly valuable crop, the 3rd most valuable crop in Iowa. Producing baled hay uses a large amount of resources (land, labor, seed, fuel, fertilizer, equipment). The way you store that hay after baling can have a big effect on losses in hay quality, so it’s worth investing additional resources (money, labor, equipment) in hay storage to preserve the value of the hay and to ensure a good return on your initial investment.
