We have 8 of our 20 acres in alfalfa, and our neighbor Joe is taking the cuttings from it, now and again in late summer. Joe wasn't able to bale it up himself with his own machinery as his tractor broke a bearing of some kind, so he had to hire it out.
Here is Joe, coming to collect the big round bales of hay.
Off he goes, taking them to the area where he'll store them for the winter to feed his cattle with.
He got just over 10 big round bales from our fields.
Joe is the neighbor who watched our place for us when we were in Texas for the month of January. He checked on our place everyday and even plowed our driveway when it snowed. We have no use for the hay right now since we have no animals, so I think it's a pretty fair exchange for watching our place.
