Red Shed Hay is situated on the banks of the Yass River. The land is comprised of deep black soil perfectly suited to the growing of lucerne. The current owners started growing lucerne here in 1996.
In 2019 after one of the worst droughts since 1995 it was decided to increase the number of paddocks sewn to lucerne. Prior to this decision extensive soil testing and preparation was undertaken in association with our local agronomist to ensure the best production and quality outcomes.
Two new lucerne paddocks have been added into the production therefore increasing the amount of silage and hay available. With the above average rainfall in 2020 and still damp conditions it was decided to put the first cut to silage therefore allowing for top quality second and third cuts of lucerne in the ensuing months.
