Not me. I like it where I am.

While I can't do near as much as I could in my 20's, that was not a particularly happy time of my life.

That's for sure, but I also like the security and $ I have these days....not to mention a treasure trove of good memories.

Yea, I wouldn't want to be as smart as I thought I was back then...... ;)

This early spring I pulled some small squares out of the barn we put in 10 years ago. I think we did 1300 or so one day, 2 hay rakes and a NH 270 baler, two friends and my wife.

Now I look at 200 bales by myself and wonder if I'll make it through the day. ;)

Dixie and my one daughter keep trying to get me from doing any baling. 200 bales would look like a thousand now for me now. This year I am only cutting enough to make 20 to thirty bales at a time here at the house. I have about 3 acres in hay here. Up at the farm my Son in law and Grandson take care of that. I don't ask for help here as they would take over and would leave me to watch. I baled 36 bales Saturday and used the loader bucket to bring them in.

I worked for a lot of farmers putting up hay,from cutting to racking to baling. My favorite was Vernon,I would mow the hay(sickle mower,he had a three point, ours was a trailer type) rake it and he had old Kenny Ford(drove a Chevy)bale it with an AC round baler.
Vernon had a Popup bale loader that hitched to the wagons and the trucks. Two guys stacking and one to keep the bales pointing the right way for the chute. Two 16 foot trucks,three wagons and it was time to ride back to the barn, 5 miles. Vernon would feed the elevator,that fed the flat hay elevator to the back of the barn and three of us to stack. We were making $5.00 an hour and minimum wage was around $1.25. And then there were guys that only wanted to pay $15.00 a day(they did not get much help) Oh yea, Gen could cook too,if you went hungry it was your own fault.
