It hasn't rained in three weeks, so Bob has been making lots of hay. He likes the heat index to be about 100 degrees when he goes in the hayloft. Here are some photos of the various equipment.
Bob calls this a hay turner and says they aren't used much any more.
Our hay basket eliminates stacking a rack in the field.
The bales still have to get on the elevator and in the barn.
This grass hay was sold by the rack to a horse owner. Grandpa drove the tractor and Bob racked. He learned a lesson that evening: Hydrate. He didn't drink enough Gatorade and had terrible leg cramps later.
