I lost a three-year-old purebred Angus bull to plastic twine, despite our constant efforts to remove every strand from every bale fed. On rare occasions a string will catch and begin feeding into the baler before the twine arm trips, resulting in string in the center of the bale, which you don't find until the bale is consumed. You have to stay vigilant. I can't imagine feeding hay regularly without removing the net or string.

Hope we can get some winter grazing planted in the next 2 weeks. Still harvesting peanuts here and need to wrap that up first.

Great article. People just don't realize you/they pay for a hay barn even if you never build one. I feel like our barns pay for themselves in 4 years. Quicker if you carry any hay over from one year to the next. We like the room we save also by stacking them 3 high in our barns we can store 400 plus rolls under a 50 X 75 shed saving a lots of room around the farmstead. Thanks again, Tim Tucker
