Last we left Farm Equipment Friday, the hay was cut, tedded, raked, and baled. And we learned about some seed signs. But we had left the hay bales out in the field! That’s one of my husband’s pet peeves, and we do not do that around this farm. We pick them all up and carry them inside. (And by “we,” I mean he does it and I take pictures.)
Lana @ Walking the Off-Beaten Path posted about this a while ago, so check her out too. She drives the truck and trailer. I just take pictures.
The fields that I showed you in the previous posts were around our home, so all we needed to do was pick the bales up with the tractor and haul them up the driveway. This summer, we also baled a hay field that was a few miles away from our home, so we needed to load these on a truck to go the distance.
From here, as the cows need it, John takes a bale at a time out to the pasture for the cows. It’s getting to that time of year when our pasture is not so good anymore, so they are starting to go through hay more quickly now!
