I had to drive south to Kitchener last week for medical tests, so I was driving through some pretty nice farmland. The farms looked big and prosperous, all of the original barns expanded by additions or entirely new barns. Here's a selection of that agricultural landscape, very different from here in the valley.
These barns with silos are likely all dairy operations, with vastly expanded space for the cows.
Long low well-ventilated barns like this new one can be used because they don't need to store hay inside the barn with the new big round plastic-wrapped bales.
This barn is a brand new one near the valley, and doesn't even look like it's being used yet. I like the style.
And a big canyon between some large rectangular straw bales, likely left from a wheat harvest. They'll probably end up used for bedding in horse barns further south.
