Baling straw
And what do you need to do with the straw? Indeed, baling ;-) . More pics at http://agralog.wordpress.com .

En wat moet je met stro doen, persen ja. Helemaal met de leuke stroprijzen ;-) . Meer foto's op http://agralog.wordpress.com .

Re: Baling straw
Is that an old MF baler? I would say you need a bale loader or grab, picking them up by hand like that is too much hard work IMO :-D

Re: Baling straw
Nice pictures, but I agree with TC about the handling of the bales. I don't agree with the brand, I think it must be an old Welger, but I am not sure.

Re: Baling straw
I don't know what's the brand of the baler. And with the hand, that's the way we do in our area. You take the whole family on the tractors to help ;-) . It's working fine, so why another way?

Re: Baling straw
Well I think the baler is an IH McCormick. It is hard graft shifting bales by hand, just a TC said. But sometimes it has to be done. I can remember gathering 2500 bales in one year at a mates farm, we had 1000 just off 10 acres! It was very hard work but we did it. :-D. It isn't to bad if the bales are tight, the grass isn't green and there are plenty of hands to help. You also have to watch your arms getting marked by the dry hay:-\

Re: Baling straw
Long sleeves & gloves + a sunhat are a neccessity. Plus it is also handy to have plenty of cold beer on hand, when it's all over :-D

Don't drink only beer when you are hot and working hard - I did it once and ended up with fever due to lack of fluid....:-(

The doctor's said that alcohol drive out water from your body, thats why you are so thirsty the day after....;-)

Yesterday we baled 1250 small bales of straw and I kept with water during work, then at night I took a cold, wonderful BEER!:-)

About the brand I am quite sure, but not 100%, that it is an Welger - the yellow mark on the front in 2nd pic and the chain protection beside the pickup looks like Welge
