HOW TECHNOLOGY IS CHANGING THE HAY INDUSTRY

Must read

Introduction

The hay industry is in a period of significant change. New Hay technologies have emerged in the last decade that will continue to revolutionize the way farmers work with their land. More efficient, less expensive and environmentally friendly than previous methods, these advancements will surely be a game-changer for anyone interested in farming.

HAY BOWING MACHINES

Hay bowing machines are used to make hay bales. Gasoline engines usually power these machines, but some are now powered by electricity. The engine turns a large spool of metal wire which winds around a drum and then compresses the loose hay into a round shape. A second operator can place plastic or paper around the hay bale as it’s being formed to keep it together during transport and storage.

HAY PUSHERS

Hay pushers are used to push the hay into the wagon. First, the grass is pushed down to form a pile, and then again, it is made into a smaller bank so that it can be loaded onto the wagon by hand. Hay pushers are often used in fields with no forklift to help to load.

Hay pushers come in different sizes depending on how many bales you would like to feed through them at once, as well as whether or not they are stationary or portable (you can move them around). Some models even have automatic braking systems that prevent accidental damage if they get dropped while being used outside of your yard (or barn!).

HAY TRAILER/WAGON

Hay trailers are used to transport hay to the stables. The grass is loaded into the trailer and then transported to where it needs to go.

Hay trailers can be towed by horses or vehicles, but they’re usually pulled by large tractors, making them much more accessible for one person to operate. If you have a large field of grass that needs mowing, a hay trailer will make your job much easier and faster.

Some people are concerned about how much energy these machines use up when running on gasoline instead of electricity; however, these concerns tend not to apply if you already own an electric-powered lawn mower or lawn trimmer—these items can easily be converted into an attachment for any machinery. Hence, as not waste fuel during transportation!

SELF-LOADING HAY FORK

Self-loading hay forks are a forklift used to load hay into a truck or trailer. They are designed for the agricultural industry, where farmers often transport large quantities of grass to market. Self-loading hay forks have three main parts:

  • The tractor
  • The mower and rake assembly
  • The hydraulic system with controls

The following tools have been developed to facilitate hay farming:

The following tools have been developed to facilitate hay farming:

  • Hay bowing machines are used on large farms. They’re typically attached to tractors and can be used to make many rows of fence-like patterns filled with grasses. The device helps lay down the material, but it’s still done by hand.
  • Hay pushers are another method of making piles of grasses or other plants. They use a wheeled vehicle driven by a tractor or horse that pushes the materials into bundles and compacts them together, so they don’t fall apart easily when disturbed during transport or later use. This is an effective technique for larger quantities of material needed for feeding animals such as cows or horses.
  • It saves time compared with traditional methods like baling hay into thick bundles using large machinery at a farm storage facility (or “barn”). However, this method does not produce food pellets that animals consume directly like those made from baling technology described above; instead, it provides loose material which must be gathered up again after being transported back home before being fed out in smaller amounts at different times throughout each day over several weeks’ worth of feedings throughout their lifespans.”

Conclusion

With so many technological advancements, it’s hard to predict what the future holds for the hay industry. But one thing is confident: The hay business will continue to change in ways that only yesterday would have seemed unimaginable.
