Hay Bales and Mountains

Hay bales and mountains

Forages in the Foothills

This is an image that I captured down the road from my house. A bunch of round hay bales sit in an alfalfa field after haying season. Almost always, haying typically starts mid to late July, and will continue through to August.

There’s lots of hay in this field signaling that there was good moisture through June to grow a good hay crop. So, these hay bales will be picked up and stored for winter feeding. The foothills and the Rocky Mountains are an amazing background. The clouds in the sky pass over adding to this classic scenery. Fields like this can be seen across Alberta during this time of the year. As a result, they are an iconic visual of agriculture in western Canada.
