Peterborough "Hay in Motion Day" July 17, 2004

After a week of rains, the weather cooperated for the Peterborough Soil & Crop Hay Day at Jim Buck's

The day was underway by 10:45 with demonstrations of cutting and windrow management with a turner and a double rake.

A speach on Hay Marketing by Jim Glenn of Glenn Isle Farms at Keene completed the morning.

After over 100 had lunch, the Exhibitors of forage seed and inoculants spoke on their products

Then rakes and some balers were demonstrated as well as a wrapper, an unroller and a small bale buncher.

The program was finished by 3 pm and the final act of cleaning up the cut hay and wet baling was completed before going home.

Organized by a committee of Jim Buck Sec-Treas, Neil Moore President from Warsaw, Ken Macfarlane past president, and Frank Hoftyzer Provincial Rep.
