How Bale Processes Bring Versatility To Your Farming Operations

A Tubeline bale processor from Farmtech for bale processes

For years, Australian farmers have used and embarrassed bale processors and it’s not hard to see why! This machine offers vast utility for their bale processes and farming operations.

Like a Swiss army knife, bale processors offer the same type of versatility. They offer the flexibility to perform different types of tasks. Owning a bale processor can seriously boost your farming capabilities.

Improving Palatability

One of the biggest reasons for owning a bale processor is its ability to turn marginal-quality hay into more palatable feed for your livestock.

Bale processors with multiple cutting stages help reduce the size of process hays down to the average cut length of 1.25-4 inches. This is the optimal size for your cow’s rumen digestibility and efficiency. Bale processors also help give you the right-sized hay for your ration.

Controlled Wastage

If you process on a daily basis, bale processors can help limit intake and reduce hay loss. These machines allow operators to have better control and monitor consumption. Compared to feeding with bale rings or unrolling them on the field, your crows will receive equal opportunities at feeding time because they get better access.

Evaluating Your Needs

When choosing the right bale processor for your farm, be sure it offers the versatility you need. There are currently two different styles of bale processors, both featuring similar rotor designs for bale processing. Their main difference is how the bale is handled and turned in the tub.

One processor style utilises a dual feed-roller design with a staggered and adjustable roller. In contrast, the most popular processor design used a simple slat and chain bed. This creates a more consistent, user-friendly system for feeding bale because the slats are always in contact with parts of the bale. This machine design helps reduce twine building, a common issue found in the dual feed roller design.

Horsepower is another aspect farmers should consider when looking for a bale processor. When bale sluggishly moves through the processors, it drags down the tractor and production. Trust us, there’s nothing more frustrating than dealing with a plugged processor. Finding processors that are built with sufficient horsepower is recommended. These tend to generate more even and consistent feeding action to the rotor.
