I have a small out yard that is in alfalfa I removed all the hives last year. production was marginal do to them cutting the alalfa before it blooms. This year the owner called to let me know the alfalfa was going to go to seed after the first cutting. I moved 3 hives out that way and 5 nucs. Went out last week the alfalfa was ready to break out into a full bloom I supered one hive with 3 supers and crowed down the bees in2 hives putting cut comb honey supers on them. I drove by friday afternoon and the alfalfa was cut. I didnt talk to the owneer but this brother said the price of alfalfa rose so he cut it. Sure wish he was as quick to call on his descision to cut as he was to call me that he was going to let it go to seed for harvest.
