Judy, Milton Freewater, OR
"We just took off the second hay crop from our fields and they were BEAUTIFUL...Even my neighbors were stopping to say 'Your hay sure looks good'. Big tall grasses with tons and tons of big heads of clover with huge leaves. It was a very pretty sight. Went across the fields with the water and just turned the cows into one of the fields yesterday. They're in 'hog heaven!'. So full they won't even go to water...they go drink out of the sprinklers!!! Big lazy fatsos!"
