Agriculture on the Roads around the World
This is gonna be a thread around different things I have seen around the world. It's gonna show how farmers in Canada and Ukraine move their equipment and livestock.

This one shows a horse cart with bags of grain loaded. They're about to be brought home and stored for the long winter. The pigs, ducks and chicken that a lot of people still keep will be fed with the grain.
It's only been 40 years or so since the tractor was introduced in our area and yet most people can't even imagine working without one.

This bin is hauled on a highway in Alberta, Canada. I like the shot because the truck is driving 110 kph and yet I got a clear shot at it.

This bin is hauled by a pickup truck. I'm not sure on how much the driver can see behind the bin. I didn't see any turn signals either. Like most of the pictures in this thread, it would get you into trouble with german police.

Just like this combine we met on a highway in the middle of heavy downpour. No lights and the header is 6m (20')!

Forget to say, we're back in the Ukraine now. This is a swather I almost hit with a car.

I have to admit I did my share in blocking roads also. :-[ Here I am showing the 9m (30') swather on a typical gravel road in Alberta.

View from behind. Shows the big space between the wheels to allow big crops to flow through. Yet in heavy canola it would block. Remind me to post some action shots of the swather.

This is a motorbike with a sidecar. It is used to transport the products of a little garden home.

Down to the last two. The village cows are brought home in the evening for milking and to be inside for the night.

Last one. The geese as well are taken home for the night. I guess that might be my retirement job. Take care of the village cow herd. ;-)

I hope this doesn't come across like I want to make fun of the vintage farming in the Ukraine. I don't. I just wanted to present a few encounters I had while on the road. Others are invited to add there pics and stories. Any comments and questions welcome.

Great photos, I like rural life. reminds me of when I was growing up in East Texas USA, we had no tractor or trucks, and no electricity. But we ate good and were happy. My how times have changed. TexasBill :-)

Martin, the first photo reminds me my small but beautiful country. Here some people can´t afford to buy a tractor so they use oxen or horses. Very nice photos, great job!!!
Take care.
