Handle, stack and bed: Straw poll

How do you handle straw in the field, barn and yard? A selection of ideas from readers may just spark a small revolution on your holding. Ah. Maybe putting ‘straw’ and ‘spark’ in the same paragraph probably isn’t a good idea. Anyway, shifting straw round a livestock unit is usually a daily chore — and unlike sparks, ways to makes the job easier or faster are a good idea. So we’ve laid out a selection of user’s ruses on the next couple of pages. See what you think, borrow what you like.
