Farmers Look to Make Hay During the Long Hot Summer

Chicot Memorial

THE DELTA (Ben Caxton) — Mississippi hay production is about two weeks behind but a long hot summer could give producers the chance to catch up. The Mississippi State University Extension Service is predicting good hay production with over half of the state’s pastures to be in good or excellent condition. Most Mississippi hay producers have one cutting completed and are working on growing the second round. Hay is typically cut for the first time by the end of May but it was June before some growers got the first crop baled thanks to a long cool spring.
