Haying 70 Years ago on Alder Slope
This picture was taken about 70 years ago and shows a typical haying
operation on the Johnathan Haas ranch, now the Jay Langston place, on
Alder Slope. Bill Hays drove the derrick team, ran a rake and
carried water for the crew which consisted of three pitchers in the field,
three men on hayracks, two men in the hay mow and a derrick driver among
others. More than a dozen workers are shown here.
