Custom Baling

We offer local custom hay baling. We can mow, rake, condition and bale your hay or straw in square or round bales.  Approximate pricing is given at the bottom of this page, however,  please contact us as we price our custom baling jobs on a job by job basis. Unfortunately, our baling schedule often becomes very full, therefore, we may not be able to accommodate all customers. Please call us to see if we can help you with your baling needs.

Mowing

We mow our hay using a New Holland 1411 discbine. A cutting width of 10'4" allows us to mow at a rate of 5 to 6 acres per hour. The discbine features two rubber rolls which press the hay to speed drying. For larger acreages, we may run two discbines at the same time to cover more acres in a day.

Tedding

We ted our hay with a 4 basket New Holland tedder. Tedding pulls the hay off the ground and fluffs it, to aid in drying.

Raking

Our hay is raked using dual hitched New Holland Rolabar rakes. Using dual hitched rakes, we can rake a larger swath with an output of one or two windrows.

Square Baling

Our square bales of hay are baled using a New Holland 570 baler paired with a 10 bale Steffen Accumulator. The accumulator drops the bales in the field in 10 bale packs which can then be loaded onto wagons, trucks, or trailers using the tractor mounted grapple. Alternatively we are able to drop bale individual bales or hand load wagons using our second New Holland 570 baler without an accumulator. We do not add any chemicals or curing agents to our hay.  They are tied with rot resistant sisal or poly twine and weigh 45 - 60 lbs depending on cutting. Approximate dimensions: 38 inches long, 14 inches tall, 18 inches wide.

Round Baling

Our round bales of hay are baled using a John Deere round baler providing a tight, high density bale. We do not add any chemicals or curing agents to our  hay. We use cover edge net wrap to preserve quality. Bales are approximately 4 feet long. We can bale at any diameter from 4' to 5'.
