We had a Allis Chelmers little round baler when I grew up, we hauled it home in 2 wagons at a time behind a 4010 JD, if memory serves correct we could get 125 bales in each wagon and made 3 trips a day, everyday.  I like the big ones a lot better too!

When I was a kid my dad chopped the hay ,blew it into open top forage boxes then we blew it into the barn . No twine ,knotters , or sore backs .  It only took two people to put up hay .

My Uncle put up hay that way, and it was some major hay dust. But less actual sweat labor. Pitched it down to the cows in one big billowing dust storm.
I had hay fever as a kid, until I finally found a job away from the hay and oat dust.

Today's machinery and methods for hay are a far cry from yesteryear.
My first hay experience was when 9 years old and driving a tractor on horse equipment to rack up loose hay onto a wagon where the farmer mowed it around to stay put while pulling the load to the barn. Then on the tractor to pull the rope to haul up the hay into the big barn. Tried to get me in the barn to mow that loose hay back but the hay fever wouldn't let me breathe up there. Liked the work, but couldn't take the hay dust.
