Sheridan County, MT

Start Date: 6/24/2017 - End Date: 7/13/2017
Have horses and cows. Haven't had to buy hay in 3 years that I have had them. Own all the hay equipment to put up hay. Usually find little spots but enough for me. This year where I usually get 34-36 bales of big rounds I got 4. I have had to buy over 6000 dollars in hay and never had to before. Averaged this year .2 bales per acre and have heard of others that got close to the same per acre. From Sheridan County, Montana, on July 13, 2017
