Media hay bale throwing competition


How far do you think I can throw a 50+ pound hay bale? Earlier this month I participated in a media hay bale throwing competition at the Western New York farm show on the Erie County Fairgrounds in Hamburg. I got 3 tries, my best one was the first one at 7 feet! Besides one other female reporter, my competition was all men from other TV/radio stations. But when it came to the mini hay bale…….


I threw that one 24 feet! But of course that one is only 3 pounds, haha!

I get to do a lot of cool and random things through my position as a TV journalist, throwing a hay bale is definitely near the top of the list! Needless to say I didn’t win the hay bale throwing competition, but it was still a funny experience.
