The How and Why of High Moisture Hay

What is high moisture hay?

High moisture hay can be referred to as haylage, baleage, and silage. It is <60% moisture hay that has been wrapped air tight and allowed to ferment. There are numerous reasons to produce high moisture hay these include:

  • Minimize harvest loss
  • Reduced harvest time
  • Increase ADG (Average Daily Gain)
  • Minimize storage loss
  • Reduce feed cost
  • Reduce weather risk

Bernard Adam is one of the most recognized figures in the history of haylage production. Since 1989 he has performed over 1,000 haylage seminars worldwide. He has been very influential in the production and products we use for the haylage process, and participates in many private and university studies involving haylage.

Maximize Contact With HLA’s Edge Flex Technology

HLA’s EdgeFlex takes a ground up approach to clearing snow. The segmented cutting edge provides the necessary adaptability to maintain consistent contact over uneven surfaces, common with aging infrastructure.

With maximum contact the mouldboard transfers its weight evenly across the cutting edge. The even distribution of force protects the surface from the potential damage of conventional blades when they scrape over high spots.

Plowing with an EdgeFlex is easy; just lay the blade down and run. While you worry about blade placement and controlling the direction of the flowing snow, HLA’s EdgeFlex technology works its way across the surface, adapting to the contours for cleaner results.

Each individual section moves independently to provide quick response to the changing surface. EdgeFlex sections tilt up to 5 degrees in either direction and has a vertical lift up to 1.5″ to ensure contact when moving over uneven terrain.

This remarkably simplified design is comprised of only two moving parts, an AR400 cutting edge and rubber suspension block.

Designed for easy field service, each section of cutting edge uses 2B2N maintenance. This simple 2 Bolt – 2 Nut design makes maintaining each 12” section an easy one person job. Removing the hardware, which holds the retaining plate in place, allows for easy access to the individual components for that section.

Designed for harsh conditions the EdgeFlex is backed by HLA Snow’s 2 Year Commercial Warranty.

Grain Bags VS. Grain Bins

Grain bags provide superior compaction and uniform filling with no loss or damage to the grain. Virtually all grains can be bagged including soybeans, corn, and wheat.

Grain BAGS

Grain BINS

  • LOW fuel charges
  • NO STORAGE FEES & bags can be moved to different locations
  • 1 PERSON can run a bagger
  • COST: Approx. 7¢ a bushel
  • Bags can be probed to see moisture level at any time in a completely airtight environment
  • You can RECYCLE bags when done
  • Fuel charge for hauling back and forth to grain bin
  • Storage fees for storing grain at the elevator. Fixed location.
  • Property taxes on grain bins
  • COST: Approx. $2 a bushel for fans.
  • Air storage can go bad more quickly
  • You don’t get back the fuel and energy used from hauling back and forth to the grain bin

Benefits Of Using An APV Roller VS Hydro Seeding On Your Landfill

“We are very impressed with the results! It is a simple and easy to use product and this is the best grass we have established on these slopes in the … years I’ve been with the company.”

-Josh Hailey, Operations Manager at Highland Landfill Angelic New York

  1. COST: One time purchase of a GW roller equals half the cost of hydro seeding a landfill for one year. Savings many times over the years to come.
  2. SCHEDULE: Be in charge of your own schedule and staff versus waiting for one of the few hydro seed companies to become available.
  3. TIME: It takes two days to complete the entire job on this landfill, compared to the 10-20 days it used to take using a hydro seeder.
  4. RESULTS: The cultipacker on the GW roller pressed the seeds down, which assures good seed to soil contact and reduces spotty and weed filled areas.

Small Implements – Big Impacts – Amazing Results!

Bale Spear 101: Choosing The Correct Bale Spear

Think A Bale Spear Is “One Size Fits All” – Think Again

With the advent of high density round balers and the increased popularity of silage bales, operators have been experiencing increased challenges in handling these heavy bales. The right bale spear makes all the difference.

One challenge is being able to fully embed the longer 49″ Conus II bale spear into these hard tightly packed round bales. While these work very well with soft core bales they present a challenge in the harder, denser bales.

Secondly, the long spear used on a large heavy bale results in fatiguing the long spear rendering it susceptible to breakage near the base. This is especially true when penetration is limited, leaving the bale hanging further from the tine base.

In these cases HLA recommends a double bale spear with 39″ Conus II tines (top guard is strongly recommended when using a tractor loader). This will allow for sufficient penetration and cause less stress at the tine base.

HLA Bale Knife

With the increasing demand for high nutrient silage, wrapped bales have found a place in many farms. Feeding silage bales require removing both plastic film and net wrap. Removing these coverings can cause bales to fall apart and make for clumsy handling of nutrient rich feed. Designed specifically for feeding round bales, the HLA Bale Knife rolls a lot of functionality into a single unit saving time and effort.

To prevent the wrap and netting from falling into the feeder or mixer, the grabber holding the wrap and net wrap securely, as the bale is sliced with the powerful serrated blade and drops free. The grabber is automatically engaged when the knife is activated through a single hydraulic auxiliary ensuring you have a tight grip before you finish slicing. The upward slicing design allows for bales to be sliced not only into feeders and mixers but also a mere 6” above the ground, making it ideal for operation in tight areas with little overhead space.

Grabber: Located at the top of the Bale Knife the grabber hydraulically holds onto the wrap and netting so when the knife slices upwards into the bale, the hay falls down and away, separating the wrap and netting from the feed.

Single Hydraulic Valve: Sharing a single hydraulic valve, both the grabber and cutting arm operate at the same time ensuring you have a tight grip on your bale before you start slicing.

Integrated Kvernland Tines: Equipped with Kvernland tines and a serrated blade, the Bale Knife is an all in one solution for bale handling. Use the tines to spear a bale, or scoop the bale onto the tines and hold it with the knife to safely move it across the yard.

Models available for 4’ – 6’ sized bales.
