that's My World. Make hay while the sun shines...
The Netherlands is very flat and wet in the western part, where I live, so there is no arable farming here. We have a lot of grass in our polders, so it stands to reason, that the farmers breed cattle, mostly for dairy products.(A polder is low-lying land that has been reclaimed and is protected by dikes, especially in the Netherlands). All meadows in Holland are divided by narrow canals or ditches filled with water. In winter if there is ice you can go skating on them, in summer they keep the cattle in the fields. Here you see that hay is gathered for this cattle in winter.That enormous machine is needed to collect the hay.
