Wednesday in Wyoming - January 9, 2019
I have to admit that I never thought much about how hay was baled, but seeing this tool in one of the barns at Fort Bridger made me wonder (1) how much work was involved in putting the hay into the baler and (2) what happened to the bale once it was formed. I found some of the answers here.
One thing I can tell you: I'm glad I wasn't the person harvesting and then baling hay. Sitting in front of a computer screen is much easier!
