October 5, 2009 - Kylie Saari
As I sit to write this blog I realize you haven't even read what I was about to comment on, so for you, consider this a bit of an early edition. We here at the Sentinel are busy working on one of our special sections, specifically an ag update. For this I wrote a story about a machine that just mows right over brush and trees and bales them into round bales for biomass energy. TREES people! It bales trees! It is new, so this is pretty big news. I know what you are saying, look around, Kylie! There are no trees in this land of fields and pasture. But this thing can be used here. CRP land, for example, can be maintained as prairie grass by mowing out the trees. I missed the actual demonstration they had for it in Madelia, but there is a video on YouTube you should seriously see. And if you are concerned about the environmental implications of mowing down trees, relax. It is underbrush that is being baled, and for biomass purposes. The trees grow back, just to mowed down again. I admit it seems odd for me to be so excited about a baler, what with my complete urban upbringing, but watch the video and post here about what you think. You will think it is pretty neat too, I am sure of it.
