Rick Kersbergen, University of Maine Cooperative Extension educator of sustainable dairy and forage systems, spoke with the Kennebec Journal about the low quality of this year’s hay harvest due to a rainy June. Kersbergen spoke about the loss of nutrients while farmers wait for the hay to dry. He said once the hay crop quality drops, the only remedy is a second crop of good quality hay.
