Record rainfall is bad news for hay production

The sweet smell of freshly cut hay has been replaced by the sour smell of water logged hay fields this summer in southwest Missouri.

"The ground is so saturated that when you walk across the fields, they just stink," Bill Garrett, Golden City, Mo., said.

Normally, from December to May, Missouri receives an average 18.72 inches of rain. This year during that same time period Missouri received over 30 inches of rainfall. That breaks the record set in 1973 when 29.21 inches of rain fell during the December to May time period.
