Rake

Like yesterdays' truck, this is another exhibit in this 'field museum'. A rake is used to move cut grain, or more typically hay or straw into dense rows so it can be picked up by other machinery such as a baler. Also to turn over those rows so the material can dry more thoroughly.

This image is cropped a little tighter than I would have otherwise liked. I did so because there was a band of grasses above the frame as you see it and I thought that was distracting. This is one of those situations where finding a different angle can help clean up an image. In this case a ladder or something else to stand on would have done the trick.
