September 2017 – Day 17

Was your hometown an economically advantaged or disadvantaged area?

There were no disadvantages in Taranaki, only opportunities, it is up to everyone to make a life for themselves, if they didn’t well that’s their problem.

The main reason for unemployment is that the urban area doesn’t like working the hour’s farmers do.

i.e.: working seven days a week, the hard work in the spring when cows are calving.

In my younger days haymaking was a very hard job stacking all the bales in the hay shed before all the fancy machinery was invented to make the job easier, but these days they make large bales that are wrapped as the baling is done, and stack away with a tractor.

  1. Farmers, of all types, definitely have a hard job, day and night. Not many folks can do what they do, especially the folks coming along nowadays. Does your area make round hay bales or square ones? There’s a mixture of both here, but mostly I see huge round ones. They bale the cotton in round bales, but also in tremendous rectangles, too.

    Thanks for participating in our challenge. Have a blessed day. 🙂
