Harvesting Silage

Throwback Thursday this week is traveling back to Cheshire, England in the mid 1980s.

Dairy farming was the primary land use in parts of Cheshire. In the summer dairy farmers make silage to feed the herd on in the winter.

In the photo the grass is being chopped as it is thrown into the silage trailer.

Some of the tractors around this part of Ontario are probably older than that. It’s still hay rather than silage around here and some of the tractors don’t have cabs, just a roof to keep the sun off.

That’s what I think each summer. There’s a dozen or so hay fields on our side road before the bush (woodland) starts. The last was only cut a few days ago.
