It’s hay time, finally!

We have finally been able to cut hay. Normally we cut the grass in late April or early May once the rains cease. This year we have had a 600% increase in our average winter rainfall.
As a farmer my intuition hints at a shift in climate, but I realise the evidence as yet may not be conclusive enough as to it being a climate or just a weather event.
