When the Weather is Your Friend ...... Part 3


Hill farmers with stock on the high fells still need small bale hay.  There are lots of places on the moor that can't be accessed by tractor so small bales are a life-line to many of our sheep in winter.

Hay time is a team effort.  
With good modern tractors it runs like a well oiled machine with each man and each tractor playing its role in making and bringing the harvest home.

Ray rows up and Chris stacks the bales off the field using a 8-grab.

 The grass is dry and fluffy and makes good, nutritious, sweet-smelling hay.

Nobody will rest until 'all is safely gathered in'.
