Below you see the nice view (ahem!) of the newly baled field.
Above is a picture of Farmer Jan, bucking a hay bale. They are about 60 lbs. I usually do my fair share of bucking bales (picking them up and putting them in the wagon and into the barn) and can keep up with the rest of the gang. I can't throw them up high though, I leave that for the guys. This year I hurt my hip somehow and had to refrain from heavy lifting. I was able to drive the truck.
Above you see the baler machine, raking the hay rows into the screw like mechanism, then into the magic box where the bale is formed and somehow tied up and
and head for the barn.
I thought there might be some of you that had never have seen the process before. You can see the land around my property is covered with forested rolling hills. It is a great place to live and work. I hope you enjoyed this little instructional journey.
