We use a lot of straw on the farm. Some of it we use to mulch our garden to hold moisture in the soil and to suppress weed growth. Most of it is used to provide bedding for the chickens. The straw provides carbon which helps to absorb the moisture of the chickens' poops thus keeping the air quality in the hen-a-bago pleasant and healthy for them. It makes our work more pleasant too.
|Lots of tie downs kept the straw bales from falling or blowing off on the journey home.|
|Pole barn is stacked with straw once again.|
In about 3 months we'll do it all again.
