Pitchers Throw Oat Bundles into Thresher

As the pitchers feed oat bundles into the machine, it crushes them. The heavy grains fall into a bin, then are carried upward and out of the spout on the right, where they land in a wagon bed. The chaff or straw is carried sideways out of the thresher onto the ground (look below belts). Lots of dust is created during the process.
