Ever since Nathan and I had the acreage in Kansas, we have wanted a baler. Now that we have cows, we NEED a baler. The last few years, we have been spending at least $500 for hay. Not a bad price, but when you have a large pasture, it seems silly to buy it when you already have it growing.
Perusing thorough Craigslist, I came across exactly what we have been looking for.
It's older, but in really great condition. Now we are in business! It will take a few years before we break even. I look at it as prepaying for your hay. With all the rain, we should get quite a few bales. Praise God it's been a wet summer.
