Northwest Iowa — While alfalfa may be about ready to cut, one northwest Iowa expert says that depending on your plans for next year, making hay may not be the best course of action right now.

Iowa State University Extension Agronomist Joel De Jong tells us that if your intent is to keep the alfalfa and harvest hay from it again next year, it might be best to hold off on the last cutting for a while.
