The top high-tech hay technologies: part 1

High corn and soybean prices  have inadvertently created a hay shortage as growers have switched hay ground into row crops. As a result of this shortage, hay prices are now at record highs, ranging from $200 to $300/ton. To take advantage of these high prices, you might want to upgrade your haying equipment to help harvest this valuable crop.

Hay producers have a wealth of new technology available. To learn about this technology, we went to the editors of our sister publication Hay & Forage Grower, the only national publication devoted exclusively to alfalfa and other forage crops. Editors Fae Holin and Neil Tietz gave us a look at the top 10 technologies now available in hay equipment. -Jodie Wehrspann

This is part one in a two-part photo gallery featuring the top 10 haying technologies. We will bring you the second part of the series on Friday.
