The days of rain stoped long enough to get the hay done. Made 340 bales on 2 acres. My 49 8n had the easy work. This is how it should be when you have seniority. LOL

I was getting around $6.00-6.50 last year for straight alfalfa small squares (2nd-4th cuttings) in Central Illinois.

Haven't sold any yet this year, but will likely ask $5.00/bale for first cut.

What I have is mix grass hay which goes for $3 to $4 a bale. Which is good hay for your riding horses. Alfafa an clover hay I hear is around $6 to $8 a bale. I am in east central Indiana.

Great pictures! By the time I was 18 and ready to go to college, I had saved up enough money by working on neighbor farms to pay for my first year of tuition (in 1997). Most of that money was earned either milking cows or baling hay. I was almost always a stacker, either on the rack or in the hay loft, and often both.

Stacking those bales on wagons and then having to stack them again up in the barn was some of the hardest work I've ever done. (14 and skinny at the time)

The baler man had it easy. I used to have to bale that a similar New Holland with its own engine and an F-20 International hand crank and cut over from steel to rubber. It was a nice old F-20.

As a favor, I helped a neighbor get up hay a few times when I was in college. One of the worst jobs I ever did for free. I was whining about it to my father & uncle and they started laughing when I mentioned bales.

"Boy, we didn't have a baler. We were the 'balers'. We got hay up w/ a pitch fork".

I grew up on a dairy farm Bruce - we started with loose hay, a dump rake and pitchforks - put it in the mow with a horse fork pulled by the horses - when the horses wore out, we got a 2N, side rake and a hayloader - still loose hay, but did have a motor driven hay hoist to pull the horse fork load up and back with the trip rope - last method before I left, was an AC round baler with an 8n and then an 861 (not the thousand pounders that you see today) - put in the mow with a motor driven loader and stacked with hay hooks. We did not have AC electricity until the REA came through in 1948. Ran the milkers before that with a DC Delco driven by a 5 horse FM one lunger. Not sure they were the "good old days."

My grandfather was a tenant farmer in Guinea, Caroline Co VA (where Stonewall Jackson died, 1863) My father (b. 1925) & his 2 brothers did whatever work was needed around the place & school work suffered as a result. Despite being only 15 miles south of Fredericksburg, VA, they didn't get electricity until 1939. My grandfather never owned a tractor, just mules. Needless to say, after WWII, my father & his brothers had nothing to do w/ farming!
