"HEALTHY HABITAT FOR HAY"
In the deep, rich black soils of Caldwell County, Texas, We grow
Good, Clean, and Nutritious HAY!
Tested for protein content, digestibility, & palatability,
our Coastal and other hybrid Bermuda grasses are available in round
and square bales. Choose square bales for convenience and easier
handling or round bales for greater economy.
This valuable animal feed is protected by being promptly removed
from the fields and by storage of the square bales in a metal hay
barn on our main ranch. The round bales are NET wrapped for
better protection from weathering and for safer transport to your
ranch operation. The John Deere net wrap uses the patented "cover
edge" method to better protect from moisture seepage even when
tightly stacked in outdoor rows.
QUALITY OF OUR HAY PRODUCT
know how important it is to produce hay with a minimum of noxious
weeds. The economy of purchasing your animal feed is much better
when "you get GRASS and not TRASH" in your final bales.
When our forage production improves by controlling weeds, it allows
us to harvest greater tonnage of "usable" grass - thereby
our efficiency increases and allows more economy in the final pricing
of a higher "quality" product. This improved quality should
be evident to you the rancher when you see a CLEANER hay with higher
How can any hay producer control competition from weeds and get
a relatively pure stand of grass from each cutting???
Start with good soil and proven grass varieties like TIFTON
85, JIGGS, and other improved Bermuda grasses and the proven performer
COASTAL Bermuda grass.
Even our deep, rich soils produce more vigorously with careful
application of Nitrogen fertilizers and Poultry Litter
to enhance the soil condition, moisture holding capacity, and available
nitrogen and minerals.
Timely Harvest is important to capture the highest levels
of food value. It is tempting to some growers to wait past optimum
maturity just to add a few more tons to the cut. This is an overlooked
point by some buyers when evaluating their hay choices. Admittedly,
weather conditions and water availability greatly affect the timing
of our harvesting, but pro-active planning helps. Such as, having
all our men and equipment ready to roll when the grass maturity
and weather are ready.
