[Cob] Types of straw.Henry Raduazo raduazo at cox.net

Trouble with hay: It is more expensive. I use chopped straw with a roto-tiller to make cob so I have been known to harvest dry straw form the field using a very sharp lawn mower. Don't use the grass catcher though It just clogs up and causes the straw to be too finely chopped. A big side discharge mower works the best Dr. 12 Hp. if you have it. Then rake up the straw and use it. You should have plenty of 2-3 inch pieces with good tensile strength. You are harvesting straw not grass so set the mower high perhaps even use larger wheels The Dr. is made for this but few people have them.
