Stacking Hay 1903 in Nebraska

Stacking alfalfa on a farm in Buffalo County, Nebraska ca. 1903. Photographer: Solomon D. Butcher. Glass plate negative 6x8. Nebraska State Historical Society. Library of Congress.

Note that one reader suggests this is harvesting of virgin prairie grass from the river valley, and not alfalfa.

Every Thursday a carefully selected old agricultural photo is featured here on Big Picture Agriculture — lest we forget how things used to be.
