"harvested with a horse-drawn reaper binder, which cuts and bundles the
plants and is a green alternative to the small combines more often
used."I would be interested in seeing if a horse-drawn reaper
is actually "greener" when the feed and waste of the horse(s) is added
to the equation. When animals were the primary source of agricultural work ~ 40%
of the food grown was consumed by the horses, oxen, etc.
