A Few Square Bales

Our round bales were finished by the contractors before New Year but the farmers decided to keep aside about 10 acres to make a few square bales. Tom brought the baler over from their farm and our old David Brown tractor was trundled out to rake the cut hay into rows. There were a few problems with the binder twine mechanism, but they ended up making 700 bales! The smaller bales are very useful to build a shelter pen for a sick animal, can be thrown on the back of the four wheeler to feed a newly calved cow and are easily managed by the girls to feed to their horses. Quite a few (hundred) square bales!
