Cash crop

Many dairy farms in Vermont have sold off or went bankrupt with the milk price drop. The pasture however becomes a positive cash flow since hay is in demand. A series of droughts in the south and mid-west cut hay production. The need for feed on horse ranches and in cattle ranches in the south makes growing and mowing/baling hay productive.636Leicester Whiting Road, Whiting, Vermont 07/23/2005

About Vermont Woodchuck

Professional Photojournalist since 1969 with a BFA from SUNY Purchase 1979-Visual Arts. I despise advocacy news journalism. Every photojournalist should be prepared to show their camera RAW images of news events. Reason: RAW images cannot be altered no matter what is done to the finished product.
