Step into a freshly cut alfalfa hayfield and take in all the smells during Husker Harvest Days. Hay demonstrations will run daily at 2 p.m.
These demonstrations showcase all the equipment you need to harvest your hay crop. Also, attendees get to see the entire alfalfa harvest process from beginning to end.
Mowers will take to the fields first. Rakes and windrowers follow. Visitors can step into the field to inspect the cut and examine plants for stems and leaves.
But soon after the alfalfa is cut, large round balers will take to the field next.
These machines — from pull-behind to self-propelled — gather up the crop and then head to the offload site where the bales drop.
Visitors can inspect each machine and bale, and then talk with company representatives for more information.
