Video: Hay Baling at Ironwood Maine

Haying is underway on our campus…a true summer ceremony. Ironwood partners with an AMAZING local and family owned farm who hays our fields, mostly for their very hungry dairy cows. Operating a dairy business is hard work these days and Ironwood feels so fortunate to host their efforts for a few weeks each year. A standard square bale weighs around 40 pounds and these big round bales can range 800-1500 pounds each…much more practical and efficient for large dairy operations. Small bales will soon follow for our hungry team of “minis” down at Frye, as all of us on campus get to witness yet another example of the rewards of honest, hard work.
