Other - Notes on back of file print read: "Haymaking. The first operation is sowing superphosphate in the early spring on the the paddock it is intended to keep or 'shut-up' for hay. [? sic] In this particular spreader the super trickles out in a thin stream along the back edge. Other sowers throw the super out by centrifugal action.
