0420 Cleaning the rice of loose hulls and foreign matter. ***Explanation***

Hand operated, this piece of equipment very effectively separates the rice that is still in the hull from pieces of rice stalk and loose hulls and dirt. It is turned by hand and fed from the top. It can be moved from location to another by carrying it by the hand holds. The next step is to use a hulling machine that beats the rice. The hull, which is much lighter than the rice, is separated from the rice by the hulling machine and rice is caught in one bucket while the hulls fall into another bucket.

Hulls from the rice are used as pig feed and to a smaller degree, fed to fish. It was expressed that only a small amount of the hulls are given to the fish. When used for pigs, the hulls are fed dry.
