Modern equipment eases burden shouldered by Carbon County farmers, ranchers

Sam Raby works on a field in Wellington with a wind rower to ready the alfalfa for bailing. Depending on the weather conditions, as well as the available irrigation water, the farmers and ranchers in the Carbon County area could get one more crop, although the fall season is drawing near. Raby has been working his farm for many years. He indicates that the modern, high-tech equipment makes it possible for him to run the 280 acre operation alone. On the other hand, operating the farm 50, 60 or 70 years ago would have been a much slower and labor intensive process.
