This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Animal Care.

For this BB, you will build a manual baler! This BB counts for 3 points in the Animal Care Straw Badge and 3 points in the Dimensional Lumber Woodworking Straw Badge.
