What the hay!!

Seriously. It was hay I saw. But what is it?!?! It was wrapped up in the shape of about 1 foot diameter tubes that were about 16 feet long and stacked on the lowboy trailer like rolls of carpet (many of these rolls, stacked high, and being pulled by a pickup down the highway), each wrapped in thin pink plastic only. Nothing else holding it's shape. Is this simply a new shape to feed barnyard animals with? - like standard square or huge round hay bales?

You could use them to help stop run-off from a storm. I've seen them use for that.

Don't know. Sounds like it may be for a forced feeder application of sorts, where the rolls are fed into a conveyor and chopped as it reaches the end to feed the cattle. Interesting. All we have here are square and round bales. The local cardiologist uses the cute pink plastic to wrap his with.
I'll ask him if he's heard of it.

Chandler or anyone,

Wasn't there a game show back in the 60's or 70's that had 3 panelists, and they were given some gadget thingy and 2 of them lied to the player as to what the thing was, and the player had to guess who was telling the truth?

There was, never saw it that early, but I saw it in syndication a few years ago. If you go to the Game Show Network, and see a game show from the '70's, it is really amusing to see what people wore back then. It is even funnier than some of the lines said by celebrities in those days. Born in '74 so I don't think I wore much of that clothing myself. I think the show was called "to tell the truth", but don't quote me on it.

If I remember correctly 'to tell the truth' had 3 people, 1 with a claim to fame [inventor, writer,etc] and 2 imposters and the panel had to determine which was the real person and who were the imposters.

The Hay

They are usually used for erosion control, usually on long gentle slopes. This is not normal hay from a field. Most of the time it is Kentucky Blue Grass or Rye grass and when it breaks down next spring it or they will seed grass seed. When they spread them out they just take a knife and make a slit in the plastic membrane. It disolves.

Wasn't what you describe called "What's My Line?"? I think George Gobel was the host, with Kitty Carlisle and Bill Cullin?, and ?

Maybe the show I am thinking of was "To Tell the Truth". Can't remember. I'd have to look it up to see if they describe it.

Well? Maybe. But the hay sure looked stalky to me. Unless no other challengers, I will go with your theory.

They are filters for city storm sewer. When the water gets over a set limit, they use them to filter out smaller stuff that may get through the larger screens.

Actually, I have no idea what they are, but if no one here knows.
Who's to say I am wrong...

Hmmmm. You'd think that would restrict the discharge rate and render the larger size of the pipe almost useless. But -since I asked the question and do not know ------what do I know?

how about just feed.

in the old days when they cut wheat they stood it up in little tee-pees.
so that could be just that but wrapped for transport to prevent against extra moisture (rain) to prevent mold.

I thought they did the teepee thing with corn stalks. Wheat too, eh?

I never seen hay transported in tubes before. Only square and round bales.

what the hay

Are you thinking of Henry Morgan, or Rose Marie as the other member of the panel? Maybe they were on the other show that was mentioned. "Whats my line" IF I remember, Whats my line had one guest. The panelists had a limited number of questions to ask him and then after all ? they had to guess his
claim to fame. To tell the truth wasn't there three guests and the panel asked ? to find out who was telling the truth, and the other 2 were imposters!
