I was really hoping to see a baler in action on that steep ground.

You have to admire their abilities to come up the ideas, and then to actually build lt.

At some point I think you gata call it. This land isn't worth farming.

I've seen tools like this being used in Northern Italy, Austria, Switzerland and Slovenia all hilly countries, they've been farming there by hand for centuries and it's all for local consumption. I've seen some very sophisticated hay handling, but not for bales only for lose hay where a grapple on a wire with a man in a cabin controls the movement, yet there were big straw bales, of course they were imported from the flat lands as no harvester could operate on those slopes. Goes to show the ingenuity of people. Tanks for sharing JD 3430.

I think the issue is, there’s so little land left to farm, they have no choice.

This is what they do when it gets really steep and inaccessible.  Watch to the end.

My clumsy a$$ would either get my foot caught in the net and go for a ride or trip over a stick and go tumbling down that hill like the cheese wheel the English chase... Interesting though
