    This is not \"haymaking\". They are stacking corn (whether wheat, barley or rye is difficult to make out), not hay. They are then mowing the crop with scythes. They are then using sickles to harvest what is (presumably) a badly lain (by the wind/rain) corn crop. After the refreshment scene a tractor is using a hay-sweep to gather hay and they are then pitchforking hay onto the elevator (for the building of a hay stack). Then the scenes of the \"binder\" (reaper-binder) and building the stack from the sheaves cut by the binder. Hay is usually made in June or July and corn crops harvested in August or September, so presumably these sequences are not in chronological order.
