When the baler is full of grass the rancher stops the tractor and opens the back end of the baler.  The baler has already put string around the bale to keep it from falling apart.  These bales will weigh about 800 pounds. "Pac Man"

When the baler is full the driver opens the back door of the baler... Then the tractor pulls away from the bale so it can shut the back "door". ...and out comes a finished bale.  The bale is held together with string.

 

Then the door is closed again... Then the rancher shuts the "door" tight and starts scooping up more grass for the next bale. ...so it can make another bale.
