Useful tool I have for testing hay..

I have a compost thermometer that is 36" long and has a sharp point for probing hay.
Long enough and thin enough to probe multiple areas on big round bales, etc.
The one I have is thinner than this one
..but the one at this website looks like it's more robust than mine.
I keep it in the hay barn. I've removed many bales from the barn that I thought would be dry enough, but after a couple of days, they were heating up.
As a quick test, if the probe is hard to push into the bale, it's probably too tough for the barn (round bales).
