As the great heat of the climate in Palestine and other similarly situated countries soon dries up the herbage itself, hay-making in our sense of the term is not in use. The "king's mowings," (Amos 7:1) may perhaps refer to some royal right of early pasturage for the use of the cavalry.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
(Hebrews gez), rendered in Psalm 72:6 "mown grass." The expression "king's mowings" (Amos 7:1) refers to some royal right of early pasturage, the first crop of grass for the cavalry (Comp. 1 Kings 18:5).
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
1. (p. pr. & vb. n.) of Mow.

2. (n.) The act of one who, or the operation of that which, mows.

3. (n.) Land from which grass is cut; meadow land.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

mo'-ing, (gez, "a shearing," "cut grass"): In Psalm 72:6 the good king's rule is said to be "like rain upon the mown grass," to start the new growth (compare 2 Samuel 23:4 Hosea 6:3). "The king's mowings" (Amos 7:1) were the portion of the spring herbage taken as tribute by the kings of Israel to feed their horses (compare 1 Samuel 8:15;; 18:5). "After the king's mowings" would denote the time when everybody else might turn to reap their greenstuffs (BTP, II, 109). The term "mower" (qatsar, "to dock off," "shorten") in Psalm 129:7 the King James Version is rendered "reaper" in the Revised Version (British and American), and in James 5:4 the Revised Version (British and American) has "mow" for amao (the King James Version "reap").
