Iowa officials set 2 schedules for harvesting hay

AMES, Iowa (AP) -

Iowa transportation officials have set two schedules for harvesting hay within state-maintained highways.  The Iowa Department of Transportation says cool season grasses and forage legumes can be harvested between July 15 and Sept. 1. Warm season native grasses can be harvested between July 15 and Aug. 15.

People must obtain a permit to perform any type of work on state highways. They will also need to wear a fluorescent green safety vest and provide traffic control in some instances.

DOT officials say only one cutting per year is allowed so grasses can recover before the winter season.
