Tractors and Hay. Hey!

For most of my early life I endured the drudge of farm work. Little did I ever think that I would grow to miss the farm life. The pasture across the gravel road from our house got the Hay cut the other day and it was so nice for Thomas and I to sit and watch this farm hand at work.
This is a Case 125U pulling a Case Disk cutter

The hay is fescue and is probably about 8 ton per an acre

This cutter went through this pasture like a hot knife through butter

This guy was getting it! I am guessing he was in Hi-5 or Hi-6.
He made quick work of this field.

  1. That's quite a piece of equipment he is driving. Must have a HUGE farm. Is this the same neighbor with all the sheep?

  2. No this is a guy who has a farm about 4 miles away and he rents the land for the hay across from us. He does have the same tractors as our neighbors an that made a little confusion.

  3. Jim, congrats to Chile for placing in 7th on The Heritage Foundations 2014 Index of Economic Freedom.

    The US slipped out of the Top 10 this year, down to 12th place, after several consecutive years of steady decline.

    Only Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, Switzerland, New Zealand, and Canada are ranked as having greater economic freedom than Chile.

    I'm looking forward to further reports from the field as you explore how free Chile is. :D

  4. The thing that strikes me is that there is no police state here Chris. It is very relaxed here. I will post more on this later.

  5. Don't you just love the smell of fresh cut hay....I always do. Takes me back to when I was a kid spending summer vacation in Germany on the farm.
