FARMING METHODS
Bert gives a description of haying equipment & work involved in raking hay with horse-pulled rake. Description of hay-rake. Hay raked better in the morning when a bit wet, but baling work needed hay to be dry, so it was usually raked twice. "…wasn't anything easy about haying…" Bert goes on to tell how this hard work made you eat like a horse & how grain had to be hauled in "tight" wagons.
