Never heard of grazer

It is     Sorghum Sudangrass

Known as the “haygrazer,” sorghum-sudangrass has excellent re-growth potential and is well-suited for multiple harvest systems.

Been a slow start to haying as it's been raining every couple days. Managed to take a few pics from what we have done so far. First pics of cutting with the new to us 4000 swather. Next pics of the 1086 with the new to us baler.

656 on rake and 1486 on baler. Hay is short here, rain came too late. Alsike clover is crazy thick in patches though. South Dakota meadow should be better. Hope to get there next week.

I've been done haying for a little while. Should put up some second cutting next month. I got all mine done and then helped a few of my neighbors. Some hay was lighter than normal and some was considerably better.

My Kubota disc mower went down on me one saturday afternoon and I couldn't get parts so I borrowed my neighbors DC132 to finish. It gave the ole 806 a little workout.

My fields were crazy thick and tall, made it very difficult to cut with the 5000, plugged often, hay kept getting wrapped around one or the other augers. Had to stop often to unwrap. Now the baling process is very slow as the baler doesn't like those big slugs from the swather. Flipped the hay with a rake to help dry bottoms, but no way could I combine the windrows. Eating sheer pins like crazy.  The baler also ate the grille from the 1486. I heard some crunch, crunch going on back there, too late. Who ever thought a spring clip was a good idea to hold that grille in??

I really haven’t got much for pictures this year other than one when I was raking and one from yesterday evening. I am starting to haul hay home from my other place before starting on second cutting at home (irrigated) in a week or so.

Just finished rolling some up before this rolled over. Didnt bring a dam drop with it just a bunch of wind. We desperately need a shot of rain. All the corn is tassling and grass Is going south quick.

First crop ever of Sudangrass.  Mowed it this evening.  Was planted 5/30.  AS9302 is a bmr dwarf variety from Alta if I recall right.  It was purchased through my local dealer.  I'm thinking it should give good.  Front tires are about 45 inches.  I probably should have cut earlier this week but time didn't allow.  The tractor would work a little bit going up hill at 8mph so I just took it easy.

Looks like a really good crop there.  I like the buildings too.  What state are you in?

Hasn't been a problem getting hay dry here so far this year with no rain. Took a few pics when I happened to think about it so far this year. Usually big square everything, but more money in small bales. Going to still big square and a friend came across a 2013 5070 New Holland that was traded in for a round baler. Didn't even have any paint wore off the pickup teeth yet. He got a very good deal on it too. He was in the right place at the right time. We're waiting for a 10 bale accumulator from Kuhns. Been ordered over a month ago. Salesman called them Wednesday and the lady said they have 4 to make yet before they get it done. Shooting for this coming Tuesday. Evidently business is good. Lol! Used this Maxillator grapple to pick up a little over 700 bales of second cutting last week. Beats a wagon any day of the week. Accumulator, tie grapple and regular grapple is what's coming from Kuhns and will be alot faster picking up. But yeah I know, that all comes with a price too.
