Unloading a Bale Stack

Have you met a truck like this on the road? The giant round cylinders are bales of hay or straw that cattle will eat through the coming months of Winter. 
The driver of this truck pulled in to Cattleman Jim's hay storage yard. 
He released the straps and turned on the hoist. 
The hoist begins to raise the flat truck bed up in the front. 
The driver jumps in the cab to slowly roll the truck forward, allowing gravity to do the unloading of the hay. 
When the flatbed is empty, he lowers the hoist and secures the trailer. 
A one person job of unloading tons of hay is quickly accomplished. 
The driver turns the truck around and heads out of the yard. 
 And back onto the road to fetch another load of hay from the field.
As we prepare for the inevitable Winter in GriggsDakota.
