The alfalfa in this field can be mowed and baled an amazing six times a growing season. It will provide winter feed for the farm's horses. Correction: This is a two step process, not three. The tractor mower this year leaves the alfalfa piled in rows ready for baling, which will happen in two or three days when the alfalfa is sufficiently dry.
You can see alfalfa being left in neat rows after its mowed. Next step, the baling machine will scoop it up, compress it, tie it, and produce compact bales of dried alfalfa for winter feed.
