Every fall the guys here at the farm fill the silage bunker with corn silage. My hubby’s job is drive the tractor back and forth over the corn silage to pack it down so more can fit into the bunker.
The blade that he pulls on the back of the tractor is used to try to level the silage off.
The first day or so of the process I don’t worry too much. The tractor is lower than the bunker sides and there is less of a danger of my hubby getting hurt.
On the third day, it’s more like this…
If he would drive just an inch or two to far in the wrong direction, he could easy take the tractor and himself into a HUGE nose dive. By the third day of this he has slept little…5-6 hours a night. I know he’s tired so I worry even more.
The first time he did it, I was nervous all day…I am mellowing with time. Now he knows what he’s doing and trust him to do without getting himself hurt.
I am happy to say the tractor is off the pile and we all can be done worrying about that for another year.
