Scope and content

In 1985 Colin Rouse experimented with farming the old fashioned way, using a Ransom thrasher. This meant storing corn still on the stems from harvest time in sheaves, until the old thrashing machine could be used. While it was perhaps great fun, at the end of the session as the store of sheaves came to an end, the rats made an appearance and the picture tells you all you need to know about that. This was the norm in the time when these thrashing machines were used and good ratting dogs were a must.
