At FarmTech Machinery, we know you are the kind of farmer who wants to enhance the quality of their chicken shed. In order to be that way, you’ll need machinery that can cut your straw, hay, or silage down to the proper size and quickly transfer them to the coops for better moisture regulation and temperature control.

The problem is most bale processors in the market today have limited options, resulting in poorly processed beddings for the shed. This leads to poorer living conditions for the chickens, affecting livestock health, overall yield, and, eventually, your profit. We believe that producing high-quality bedding from hay is achievable and the standard for Australian farmers. 

We understand the need for versatile and dependable equipment to provide comfortable and soft bedding for your livestock. That’s why we have the Teagle Tomahawk 8500, the all-in-one bedder machine to make your bedding processing better, faster, and cost-effective.
