Haying seems to be just getting under way in the Stutsman County area.
About a week behind schedule according to the National Agriculture Statistics Service.
This early morning shot shows a little haze in the air and some dew on the windrow in a field just south of Jamestown.
Most people I’ve talked to anticipate an average hay crop this year. We had good moisture going into the spring due to the heavy snows last winter but we’ve received little rain this spring and the cool weather has left us short on the warmth needed for grasses to grow.
