posted on Monday, February 28, 2022 in How To

Upgrading your hay or forage farming equipment can be expensive and overwhelming to shop for. Whether you’re a new or an experienced farmer, this article can be your go-to guide to simplifying the shopping process. Learn the essential equipment needed for hay farming.  

Hay Baler 

Depending on your needs, you can choose a square or round baler machine. Most hay farmers are switching from small square bales to big round bales because it’s less labor-intensive. There are many large and small hay baler machines for sale at discounted prices. 

Hay Rake And Baler Combination

If you’re in the market for a new baler and a new hay rake, you can combine them together. A hay Rake and Baler combo is a two-in-one machine. It’s a great way to save money and storage space. The machine will rake your hay while simultaneously producing your round or square bales. Cut your work-time to half with this efficient combination. 

Wheel Rake

An essential part of hay production, a wheel rake makes it easier to handle dry hay. If you don’t want a machine that combines a  hay rake and baler combo, you can get a singular rake machine. Choose the wheel rake 590 or WR00 Carted Wheel Rakes Series which offers 8-, 10-, and 12-wheel models. The rake also has two-arm, left, and right side only raking and optional center kick wheel available. 

Disk Mower Conditioner

The final hay farming equipment you’ll need is a disk mower conditioner. Once you cut your hay or forage you need to act quickly to preserve its quality. A disk mower dries hay faster. It also conditions the cut hay to preserve its nutrients.
