Forage and Hay For Sale

Preparing good-quality forage and hay is absolutely vital to ensure that livestock receive the correct nutrition over the winter months. Get it wrong and the farmer could be faced with expensive bills for feed or vet bills for his animals. This means having the right equipment to do the job, and thankfully you will find lots to choose from on the second-hand market.

Equipment Used for Forage & Hay

The range of forage and hay equipment is extensive. It includes items like attachments for larger pieces of plants, such as bale grabs, bale spikes and bale wrappers. This equipment makes sure that the harvested crop can be handled effectively and stored properly. Forage harvesters themselves, of course, are the machines which are responsible for gathering in the crop. These are sophisticated pieces of plant with complex processes and components on board to ensure that the best cut is achieved. Many have self-levelling mechanisms to keep the cutters close to the sward and make sure that the maximum possible harvest is cut. Selecting a forage harvester means looking at the capacity of the machine and also the features offered. There should also be consideration of the machine's service life, costs and workshop history.

Mower Conditioners

Mower-conditioners have become ever more popular and now account for a great percentage of sales in the sector. Combining the two jobs of both mowing and conditioning the sward, they save farmers time in operation and also save money by replacing two machines with one. Mower-conditioners also vary according to their width and the positioning of the trailed equipment to one or both sides of the tractor to the rear or front. Dedicated mowers are still available for those who want a simpler machine, and rakes are always on hand for simple trailed conditioning duties.

Balers

Balers are also extremely important pieces of kit in the sector and need careful consideration when selecting. Balers come as round or square balers and and the size of bale produced also varies. Throughput is a key consideration, and the cutting mechanism and condition of components should also be examined. Many balers also combine wrapping duties to give a comprehensive baling operation, and these should always be considered.

Bales are bulky, heavy and require extensive storage space. This can mean lots of handling and stacking duties, and there is a wide range of stacking and loading machines to help the farmer achieve this. There is also a wide variety of straw bedders, tedders and toppers to consider.

As can be seen here, the range of forage and hay equipment available is truly vast. It ranges from simple, low-cost implements to help a achieve a specific task to far more sophisticated machines, such as self-propelled forage harvesters and combined baler-wrappers. Choosing a used forage and hay implement is a relatively simple affair as the condition of the tool is there for the farmer to see. Selecting a more sophisticated piece of plant is a different, and more costly, matter and care should always be taken to give the machine a proper inspection and trial, perhaps with professional help.
