Useful tool I have for testing hay.. 07/24/2014 @ 5:23pm 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 http://humanurehandbook.com/store/Reotemp-36-Compost-Thermometer-A36PF.html ..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).
