I don't know if anywhere else in the US bails hay besides the midwest, but I live in Minnesota and I am in the core of farm country. My whole interest started when I was getting frustrated by not getting employed to the fast food places I applied at. I then received a text message from a friend asking if I wanted to go bail hay at $10/hr. I had no idea what this was but I agreed. Now this is the freaking coolest work ever, I have been working for 3 days straight. Todays a day off and I'm longing to go back to the fields Does anyone ever do this? Do you dudes like it? Godbless brahs...

Yep, you'll end up stalking 4 guys from Atlanta on a kayaking trip and rape one against a tree whilst asking him to squeel like a pig.

Why is it so fun?


I don't think of it as work, I think of it as a game of;

Logic - Stack as many high without falling over. Correct placements, etc.
Speed - Obviously, they come out of the bailer fast.
Strength - Another obvious one, they are 40-50 lbs.

I think I have found my lifelong career.

Yeah we do it over in Montana. Not really considered Midwest...well i dont think so. I've always considered it West, but anyways, i've never actually done it, i was to young when my family would do it out at my grandpa's ranch.

Although i did work at FedEx, and it was much of the same thing you described. Logic in stacking, Speed because you have to move all the packages fast to keep up, and Strength with some of the packages up to 150lbs. I liked that job. I wouldnt make a career out of it though, considering they wont let you work full time, unless your a manager and you dont do all that as a manager.

Anyways, yes i like that kind of work!

From the way you describe, it reminds me of when I used to work at UPS as a loader, stacking boxes super-neat at a near-exhausting speed. I tried to think of it as workout, which it was in a way, but after a while my mind started going numb from the repetition month after month.

I've done that a few times, and I totally and utterly FUCKING DESPISE DEALING WITH THAT FUCKING SHIT!

Might have something to do with that I'm allergic to hay, so I get rashes covering my arms, or any place else that might have touched it, and makes my nose so stuffed that I almost can't breath.

Ive been cutting hay for 2 weeks now, the onlything keeping me sane is the fact that the tractor had air conditioning, and a good radio that i can plug my MP3 into. Imagine cutting hay at like 5 mph listening to Arch Enemy.

I live in South Dakota, and there is sooooo much clover right now, so i have to go slow or i plug the mower up.
