Spring Farm Work

Cam and I were on the way home from one of the locations last week when we came upon these two fellows. Their trailer and tractor effectively blocked the narrow road. They asked us, by gesturing, if we would wait while they finished loading the hopper on the back of the tractor. They cut open the bags, letting the clear plastic liner material fly in the wind and heaved the contents into the hopper. I've handled 25 kg bags of chicken feed at home.  These bags looked much larger and heavier. The elderly fellow in grey is wearing a suit jacket and a flat cap which is very common. When they were finished they both jumped down off the trailer; the younger man drove the tractor into the field and we went on our way.
