Spring rains have not only delayed hay baling on many southeast Kansas farms and ranches but have also affected the quality of the hay. 

One inch of rain typically leaches 10 percent of the nutrients out of hay.  

High quality hay has higher losses than low quality because it contains more soluble nutrients.
