Hey, everyone. Hubby and I are retired USAF and have been farming now for 8 years. We have 100 acres- 40 of it in grass hay which we feed our animals, and sell some if we have extra. Over the last couple of years our manpower pool has dwindled -- no one wants to sling square bales anymore. So, a friend told me about a pop up bale loader. I researched it and WOW- that would help us out a lot! If anyone knows of one (that works) in or around KY, I would definitely be interested in acquiring it. Last year we never got a cut of hay, and this year it's not looking very good either, so if we get a cut, we're gonna have to be husting to get it in, and finding people to work is impossible. Thank you, and God bless all the farmers!

If I am thinking about the same thing you are describing I bought one this spring it really help us cut the labor down.my suggestion if you don’t find one is try to find some local high school football players that’s what I have been doing and it works out great plus they are not allergic to grass.
