A farmer runs the the New Holland 634 baler turning the cut field grass into large round bales of hay that one sees stored in barns or drying out in farmer's fields.
"Making hay while the sun shines," is an old traditional phrase that grew out of our agricultural past. In these two photos, above and below, are two farmers busy at work mechanically making large round bales of hay.
It is a sunny day and the two men are very busy taking the opportunity to do the work while conditions are dry.
Working as a team of two farmers - while one is baling the second farmer is spiking each produced round bale on the back of his tractor then heading toward the barn to place it in storage.
Some round bales can weigh up to one thousand pounds. They are used mostly for winter feed for domestic farm animals.
Round bales have become inviting for photographers. Even I cannot resist stopping to photograph them.
