In his 700th presentation around the world, Bernard Adam spoke to a handful of local farmers at Ruston Tractor on Tuesday.
Adam said he has been using haylage, hay that has more than 50 percent moisture that is wrapped in plastic, in his Ontario farm since the late 1980s.
“I live 18 miles north of the Vermont border,” Adam said. “I’m in the USA for two weeks, and I am at home on my farm for one week. When I am home I like to go in the woods and work.”
Adam said he had first heard of wrapping bales of hay in 1986.
