As if there's not enough to worry about. With all the rainfall here in Central Florida our regular supplier suggested they'd be out of stock for a while. I finally found someone that could send me a 53' trailer but I'd have to transfer it to our empty one. It took every bit of 3.5 hours to move 1400 bales from theirs to ours & I'm still recovering from that one. During transfer we must have had over 100 loose ones come apart which was a total pain. Now that we're delivering & installing them I see what kind of garbage was shipped to me. I knew they we're fresh raked & that's why I overlooked them being wet and all but now the ones that are dry look nearly as old & grey as what we're covering over. I really shouldn't be surprised since my very first order from a different company was just as junky, sticks, sand & many rotten ones. It's like a crap-shoot trying to get good stuff. How in the world do you request quality straw when it's in limited supply. Maybe I should have just pushed out the jobs until my current supplier could make the delivery. I just called & told them how I feel & she agreed that that was the only field available to rake & was afraid that would happen. Having raked & baled 30 acres last winter I honestly think they raked an old field down to the dirt & shipped it out. When I'm raking I only scratch the surface so as not to pull up the old base layer. Last night I dunked 20 bales in Enviro-Color to see where it'd get me but that ain't gonna work in the long run. Life sucks! If it were still in their trailer I'd tell them to come get it but it's sitting in their competitors & I paid them $3500 cash already. Suggestions?
