FARMERS who grow hay near Waroona recently took the morning off to find out how their hay had fared in Waroona Rural Services' second annual competition.
They gathered at the Drakesbrook Hotel with hay competition organiser Dominic Pinzone and Michael Needs, from Waroona Rural Services, to inspect the results from hay tests in December and discover what the judge thought of their hay based on their test results.
As reported in last week's Farm Weekly, the number of competition entries jumped up to 70 this year and while it was a good year for growing plenty of hay, getting onto water logged paddocks to cut and bale it at the optimum time for quality proved difficult in some instances.
