Description

The history of making hay dates back for centuries and centuries. When mankind began to grow crops and livestock rather than being nomadic, they had to have some type of forage to feed their livestock during the cold and winter months. Since that time there has been a slow and steady progression from harvesting material by hand to today’s modern hay making equipment that maximizes time, labor, fuel, etc. However some countries to this day still use the methods that are thousands of years old when it comes to hay making.
