Harvesting has been going on at the farm with the crop of winter barley being harvested. It is so called as it is sown in the winter for harvesting the following summer.
Once the barley is ready, the harvesting is done with a combine harvester which separates all the grain from the cut straw.
The grain is stored in the back of the harvester and, when it gets full, is emptied through a grain shute into a trailer towed by a tractor.
The grain is then taken back to a covered barn in the farm where it is stored and used as an important part of the cows’ feeding ration through the year, but especially in the winter months.
