I think cousin J thought it was just another day in the paddock, but we enjoyed watching him work, and it was very interesting to see how he unloaded the bales. The main aim here is to get the bales into the hay shed as quickly as possible. There was no threat of rain on this day, but sometimes there is and if the bales get wet they are ruined or downgraded. So, the bales are unloaded very quickly in the middle of the hay shed. For long term storage they have to be repacked into side bays and this is done mostly by hand, one at a time with the aid of an elevator.
