First cut complete!
The weather was on our side and we kept working on through our first cut. We finished first cut on the 9th June with all bales wrapped and off the fields by the 13th June - a record of a first cut for us at Baillie Haylage. Done and dusted in just over 3 weeks! We are so grateful for our dedicated harvest team who work so hard. All the machinery now gets a clean down and any maintenance work before being stored away until second cut.
After the first cut is also when we apply the last areas of fertiliser for the remaining cuts. We have had very warm weather, along with good amounts of rain, meaning perfect growing conditions for our fields in preparation for second cut.
For the sales team, we are excited to be getting ready for the first of our shows this year. We will be at The Great Yorkshire Show in July so it is time to get our show kit, prepped and ready.
We are also pleased to be sponsoring the Pony British Novice First Round at Bishop Burton's Pony Premier Event on 30th June.
