A small conical haystack, usually only three or four feet in diameter and six or so feet high. Such stacks were generally built to allow the hay to cure, after which it would be placed in larger stacks for storage. Things like peanut vines with the peanuts still attached might be stacked in cocks until the peanuts dried, after which the vines would be thrashed.
