Re: Your best "Ag Misses School" Reason. Mine is unbelievable
Throwing hay is HARD! Sitting in class would be much easier. My guess is they had to go with the trailer, fill the trailer, and then move it back to the barn and unload the trailer. I do about 20 two string bales of hay a month for my critters and let me tell you, the pulling off the trailer and stacking in the barn is 30 minutes of hell. And that's just for my small herd. If these kids are throwing 3 string bales up and then down and then up they are working harder than any athletic weight lifting session. If the school barn has 5 or 10 steer that's a lot of hay to feed those monsters too.
OP - if you really want to think it's a lame excuse meet them at the barn when they get back.....
