Frequently Asked Questions

On this page, you’ll find answers to some of the most common questions we get from customers.

Yes, we do fertilize before every cut, based on soil analysis from Texas A&M University Agriculture Laboratory.

During winter and early spring, we spray for various weeds after consulting with Cherokee County’s Agriculture Extension Agent. Most years we spray again after the first cut, based on the agent’s recommendations.

After the hay is cut and cured, we test it for proper moisture content and confirm that it’s ready to be baled. Once it’s baled, we move all the bales into a barn on the same day.    Our barn has a new roof, new siding, and new flooring, which was completed in 2022.

No, but we do carefully load purchased hay on our customer’s trailers.We have two properties in Cherokee County, Texas, just a couple of miles from Alto, Texas. We have rebuilt all the roads on our properties, and they are easily accessible by small trailers as well as large 18-wheel trailers/tractors. We do ask our customers to schedule pickup times in advance by calling Bill Hudson at (903) 363-2343.

Square hay bales are bundled into a 21-bale bundle using a 2021 Bale Baron. Each bundle has 21 square bales measuring 8’ by 4’ by 3’. At most periods within the season, we do have a limited quantity of individual square bales for sale.

We typically roll round hay bales measuring 4’ by 5’ and maintain them in stock at our Cherokee County farms. We will attempt to alter the size of round bales if arranged by our customers in advance.
