2. Bob Dandy Barn

The Bob Dandy Barn

Another example of labour saving devices & innovation can be seen in this large barn, even though it is somewhat the worse for wear.

The barn is set up so that the hay is stored in a central compartment with stalls arranged along the outside – the hay can be pushed right in to the mangers.

Long before the “Modern” Corporate farm, mechanized, “efficient” systems were in place on many farms. Note the framework for the sling used to shift hay into the loft.
