I would like to have a buck for ever fork I stuck into a small square bale of hay with one of those waiting up above till it all to came together.  We used a sling for loose hay before the baled hay came about.  Used the same carrier.  Those are a dime a dozen in the Midwest as nobody uses those barns any more and they are either tore down or have fallen down.  Amish use them yet with loose hay.  Always wanted to make sure you hung on to the loose rope on the bales you were sticking, not the tight rope.  There is not room for the rope and your hand in that pulley if the puller takes off to soon, trust me.

I quit reading popular science when someone hinted in an article that dairy farming in NY state should be outlawed.

My anti acids are working much better now.

Some people are idiots, and by the way we have a small beef herd, but I know a lot of dairy farmers.
