1. Bailers Marker
Inscription.  

Farmers used bailers in both hay and grain production.

Hay and straw had to be hauled to and hand-fed into the baler for processing. This process could be dangerous to operators because their hands and arms could be sucked into the machinery. Power Take Off shafts (PTOS) were invented in the 1930s and added on tractors. This allowed the bailer to directly uptake hay from field rows. This increased efficiency and worker safety.
 
Erected by Utah State Parks.
