Wall of Squares

August 5, 2012

Recently, after wheat harvest, farmers in this area have hired baling operations to come in and bale the wheat straw into large square bales. (The straw is left after the combines harvest the grain.)

These large squares are much easier to stack and transport on a semi trailer than the traditional round bales. Until they’re loaded on a trailer, the bales are stacked at the edge of the field. The balers are fun to watch and I love the wall of squares along the country roads.
