Bales Going for Fodder

Straw Bales, Vicarage Lane, Low Hutton

These bales have lain in the barn at Low Hutton on Vicarage Lane since last autumn but now they're on the move to the Pennines.
Bob Mansell tells me that there is a general problem with cattle feed this year, grass simply isn't growing because of the persistently cold weather, so cattle can't be turned out of barns because there is no new grass for them to eat. So this straw is on the move to Malhamdale where it will be used for cattle fodder.
