Hay and Forage Equipment

Harvesting hay consists of mowing a forage grass, letting it air-dry thoroughly, then bailing it into a round or rectangular bundle. There are various types of machines that carry out the necessary steps in the process, and some that may improve the drying process.  

Choose a forage species that is capable of producing quality hay. Worthy hay keeps as many leaves as possible since the leaves contain 2/3 of the protein. For the most wholesome value and yield, harvest the crop at its best stage. Forage crops produce more yield as they mature but the nutritive value and decent taste decrease at first bloom. The hay will need to be cut to ensure drying and baling can be done efficiently while sustaining the quality. Hay should be dried to 15-20% moisture. Avoid turning the hay in a tumbleweed manner and avoid exceptionally hot, dry weather. To maintain feed quality, properly store the hay. Hay may be stored as long hay, chopped hay, baled hay, or as dehydrated hay.

Maintenance Tips

When performing maintenance on hay equipment, keep the following tips in mind.

-          Replace broken or worn parts

o   A baler with loose belts, chains or other damaged parts will not feed material correctly into the bale chamber

-          Guarantee suitable clearance between crimping rollers on mower conditioners

-          Always lubricate sprockets and chains when the machine is turned off

-          Make sure the PTO is detached and the engine is off before dismounting to service or adjust the equipment

-          With mowers and square balers, wait until all components have stopped moving

-          Always lock and block the rear gate if you must be beneath it

-          Ensure a Class ABC fire extinguisher is on all tractors, and that they are charged and properly working

-          Keep all shields and safety guards in place, replace instantaneously after maintenance is complete

Safety Tips

-          Shield disc mowers properly

-          Always use a tractor with a cab or a rollover protection system

-          Never stand behind conditioning rolls or flails

-          Keep fingers out of moving knotters

-          Do not ride the wagon when a bale thrower is used

-          Keep equipment “harvest ready”

-          Securely block hydraulically-raised equipment before working around or under the machine

-          Keep a fire extinguisher on all powered equipment
