Growing On The High Plains: Hay Isn't Just For Horses

Aug 22, 2019

Wily coyotes and mischievous mice aren’t just in cartoons. They can also be found at certain times of the year in the hay bales that protect Skip’s garden.

Check out the slideshow of local farmer Tom Stoppel’s hay bailer as he delivers the stacks of straw.
