It’s likely that nearly every farm has, or had, the item introduced in this “What’s This?” entry. But depending on where you were, it could have had more uses some places than other places.

The person who submitted the photo said the item was around the farm since he was old enough to remember and that was quite a few years back because he retired from dairy farming in 1998.
