  • Published Articles - Hay Day
    the call came fresh hay has been cut Which means that all other plans must be orchestrated around the pick up of this essential commodity The trailer is hitched up to our old Ford and ropes of all colors are thrown in the cab There is an urgency to this task we need as much as we are able to stack and must do so before the rain descends Stacking bales is like a game of real life tetris it is training in practical physics One hundred bales or so is respectable one hundred twenty something is the record Criss crossed and counter balanced the hay is piled high above each vehicle As the outer limit of stability is reached rope is thrown about the pile securing our treasured bales Itchy and sweaty the drive home reflects the stacker s ability if a bale falls it often means two or three or worse Back at the farm the process begins in reverse We have various storage buildings the ox hovel loft the Open Sided shed no longer so open sided the quonset tent the barn eves and unused animal houses The first hay of the season however gets the primo spot within the ox hovel loft The loading process is facilitated with a human powered pulley The loaded hay truck is backed beneath the loft doors A pulley and ropes are hung from the chain at the loft entrance a bale is hooked on one end On the other is one of us At a signal from our counterpart the person on the ground starts running A thirty or forty foot sprint is usually sufficient to launch the bale up to the loft where a third member of the hay stacking trio awaits it unclips the bale and stacks it
