Avoid Hay Fires

hay bales on fireThis year's wet growing conditions increase the risk of hay being too wet when it's baled, which also increases the possibility of hay fires. To minimize that risk, check your hay's moisture levels regularly, and if you suspect the haystack or bales are heating, monitor the hay's temperature. (Photo courtesy of Flickr: fauxto_digit)
