The old art of hay making and the long laborious process that it once was, has nowadays been superseded by a much quicker and easier process, provided of course that we get favourable weather.

One drawback to the large quantities of hay that have been made is that those looking to trade it are meeting lower prices and sluggish demand.

Traditionally, when good hay was made it always commanded a premium price, especially when supplying some of the niche markets, such as the equine sector.
