A pitchfork is ideal for all foodstuffs with long stalks, including beets. It's the perfect way to put them into the trough. You need a lot of skill and the correct method to use a pitchfork properly. Right-handed people usually hold their left hand against their body so that they can get more leverage with their strong right hand. When the farmer has finished his work, for fun he sometimes arranges a wheelbarrow race on the farmyard. There's actually a world championship for this sport, which takes place every summer in Saxony, Germany.
