Wakulla County Farmers Begin 2012 Haying

Haying starts in Wakulla County with optimism for 2012's weather prospects.

Wakulla County hay farmers will begin cutting hay next week.  After barely adequate rain, the moderate temperatures and low humidity are providing near perfect weather for cutting and bailing hay.

Active scouting for the Bermuda Stem Maggots continues.  So far there have been no sightings of these new exotic pests in the county.

Producers are hoping for much improved weather conditions over last year’s extreme rain shortage.  At present, National Weather Service forecasters are offering slim prospects.
