Chopped silage ferments better by releasing sugars and mixes better in diet feeder wagons. Chopped straw absorbs moisture better, resulting in less straw required. It also makes a more consistent manure that is easier to spread.
Round Hay Baling
Variable diameter hay balers cater for all customer needs.
Welger high density hay balers can consistently produce grass silage weights of 750kg/bale especially when chopped.
The advantages of chopping silage as it is baled, is that it increases the hay bale density, less air trapped in bale means it ferments quicker reducing ph so it becomes more stable so harmful bacteria can't reproduce as quick. The chopping also breaks the grass stem releasing sugars also speeding up the fermentation process. Chopped silage is easier to use in feeders especially for sheep.
Large diameter flotation wheels are fitted to all hay balers.
3 machines available.
