Our alfalfa is ready to mow and chop.
You want to mow when there are about 10% blooms throughout the field.
The mower showed up soon after I took the pictures of the field.
There are three mower sections all together 30 feet wide. There’s one in the front and two in the back of the tractor.
The machine is merging all three mowed sections into one large windrow.
Here’s the windrow up close.
I’m going to take a ride!
Here’s the view from the cab.
Here’s how the driver stays awake mowing about 240 acres per day. About to watch the NBA playoffs!
You can see how the mower is attached to the tractor.
Here’s a rear view of the mower.
You can see the two mower sections in the back merging with the one already on the ground from the front section.
