I bought a few compressed bails of alfalfa like I usually do and when I opened them up, this time

they fell apart and were almost total green powder inside, a whole load of waste.

They were nice and leafy around the edges

and smelled great and looked perfect until I cut that wire. What happened?

I have purchased compressed bails like this in the past and this never happened before.

Just wondering what could have gone wrong; if they squeezed it too tight or if it was at bailing?

Marty, that field of hay was bailed too dry. That's what causes the leaves to turn to "powder".
