Summary:
"The curing truck is a device which supports hay during the curing process, protecting it from rain and from moisture in the ground and makes reasonably certain the production of a good quality of hay, even during unfavorable weather. It requires no more man labor or horse labor for loading, unloading, or hauling than do the more familiar methods of curing. This truck is the most economical and efficient device  Read more...

Abstract:

"The curing truck is a device which supports hay during the curing process, protecting it from rain and from moisture in the ground and makes reasonably certain the production of a good quality of hay, even during unfavorable weather. It requires no more man labor or horse labor for loading, unloading, or hauling than do the more familiar methods of curing. This truck is the most economical and efficient device known for the successful making of hay in certain parts of the South, and can be recommended for large acreages, especially of alfalfa, in any section where the production of hay is a more or less hazardous undertaking on account of the prevalence of rainy or cloudy weather. In counting the cost of this method, the items of repairs, interest, and depreciation may appear large, but any increase in these items is more than offset by the great gain in efficiency, considering the average loss of hay cured by ordinary methods in rainy weather. For instance, at the present price of Johnson grass hay, much grown in the Southern States, the total cost of the trucks used in harvesting it by the method here described will be repaid by a saving over other methods of less than 1 percent of a single crop. Farmers living in humid regions and southern hay growers in particular will find it well worth while to investigate fully the advantages of the curing truck."--Page [2].
