Description

Hay was first cut and windrowed with a dump rake. When the hay had dried sufficiently to store in a barn the windrowed hay was loaded on a hay wagon using a hay loader which was pulled behind the wagon. When the hay wagon was full, the loader was detached and the hay was taken to the barn to be unloaded.
