Haying Crew

Two green tractors sit on a green field after a long day putting hay up.


July is a busy time for neighbours in the community. It’s haying season, and always a challenge to manage the logistics of making hay with Mother Nature. Since we live west of Calgary, storm’s build up with moisture coming over the Rockies. It’s hard to get hay off when you want to at the right time, and dry! The goal is always to have the best quality feed for animals that you possibly can. This field was being baled for cattle to feed during the winter.

In this photo, the John Deere tractors rest in the field after baling hay all day. The sun provided a pink hue to the clouds. There was a slight chance of rain, and it looked like there was a small shower to the south. I managed to catch this view near my driveway right before the light went away behind the mountains.
