The farmers are making the best of all this nice weather with the first silage cut of the year. I’m not sure if this is early or late this year, as I didn’t note when it was done last year. Sand seems to think the first cut would have been around the end of April.
The first fields to go were the biggies on the other side of the main road.
Yesterday were the first cuts adjacent to our policies. The farmer who owns these fields has a beautiful herd of Ayrshire milkers, so will be cutting the grass to go in a silage clamp.
