Balage contractor discusses a brief history of preserving grass before exploring the modern practice of wilting, rowing up, baling and stacking. This booklet also investigates social studies, health and safety and science links, such as types of bacteria and fermentation.
Balage Contractor is part of a series of books aimed at reluctant teenage readers and students who have learning difficulties. Since these students generally have good practical skills, a different practical Kiwi career features in each book. The books have also been designed to show the links between everyday life and the content taught at school.
