Cutting Alfalfa yesterday

I thought we had a law that said no cutting ,haying, baling until June sometime.
The exception being the shoulder of hwys for safety purposes. Come to find out that law doesn't apply to private lands at all. Potentially lost a few turkey nests yesterday in a 500 sum acre alfalfa field.

The hell with the water and the hell with ground nesting wildlife. Wow.

No mowing road right away till July 15 unless 200 yards from a Farm dwelling or for safety reason at intersections so vehicles can see one another.
Why Iowa has no nesting habitat more and more farming to the edge of the roads as the fences have been removed, but farming to the edge of the road is illegal in Iowa, as is haying the right of way till July 15th. FYI
