Straw baler

The farmer who owns the land behind our house was making straw bales this afternoon. Being able to watch this is one of the (many) nice things of living in the country!
Two extra smaller wheels were placed in front of his tractor to flatten the rows a bit..

..then the straw was led into the machine on a sort of conveyor-belt, and in no time neat rectangular packages like this one appeared.

  1. Occasionally I see these large rectangular bales here.

  2. Passed by some corn fields last week--not so many here where I live. They were nice to see.

  4. I used to help with that job many years ago but with a small, ancient tractor with no cab and a baler that made much smaller bales. It was tedious, dusty work; the modern equipment seems a big improvement.

  5. I saw also these in my country holiday. They looks just the likey here too.
