Chaff Cutter (1)

By PhilT2
A Clipper Safety Chaff Cutter found in an outbuilding at Calke Abbey
A chaff cutter is a mechanical device for cutting straw or hay into small pieces before being mixed together with other forage and fed to horses and cattle. This aids the animal's digestion and prevents animals from rejecting any part of their food.
Chaff and hay played a vital role in most agricultural production as it was used for feeding horses. Horses were extensively used in farming operations until they were replaced by tractors in the 1940s.

A wonderful retro machine, Phil, so valuable in its day. A super image here, I can almost smell that musty atmosphere of old straw and animal foods in big brown carrier-sacks.

Lovely old machine, probably wouldn't be considered safe today.
I like the muted light and colour.
