The everyday of our family farm
You have been getting some 'warm' days I see. Warm and dry.
We have only just been able to re-commence baling after the rain earlier in the week, so yes, we are loving the warm and dry outlook for the coming week.
Your machines looks so different. I don't know what they are, but they looks so lovely.
The pause that refreshes.
nice capture and back to work.
The work must go on.
I too, am curious as to what these machines are?
This is our baling rig. The machine at the back is a hay baler. It compresses the windrowed hay into an 8'x4'x3' bale that weigh about 650kgs each. Hay has to be baled with night air or a little dew otherwise it just shatters, too much dew and the hay can go mouldy or spontaneously combust. There is only a limited amount of time each night that is perfect for baling at the correct moisture. The machine in the middle is a steamer that simulates dew so you can bale hay at anytime during the day. It adds moisture to be windrow of hay prior to baling.It is a very expensive rig, but hay is what we are all about so we have some very specialised gear.
Thanks for the explanation. Amazing technology!
That looks like an expensive bit of machinery there. Hope your weather is just perfect for baling. Take care Diane
