Bale Density Study with Penn State University - Part 1

Better Baling Part 1: When considering a new round baler, you may not be thinking about bale density, but you should be. Producing fewer, denser and higher-quality round bales will drive down your production costs, while driving up the nutrition of your bales, and your profits. What’s the difference? Higher density round bales mean lower feed costs and more money in the bank. Lower maintenance costs Denser round bales means less twine, wrap, fewer bales to transport and store, plus less fuel consumption. Less time in the field Heavier round bales translate into more crop per bale and fewer bales per field, meaning less labor. Less waste Less crop is wasted because heifers consume more of the bale. Harvesting more leaves (alfalfa) equates to higher nutrition. More crop in the bale and wrap savings Compared to the competition, New Holland puts more crop in the bale. Over an 8-year roll cycle, you will save up to $18,680 in net wrap. Improved chamber design Get the industry’s highest round bale density with New Holland’s short tough belts combined with steel rolls. Crop moisture sensing Precise moisture knowledge leads to less ruined feed, greater animal weight gains and milk production, plus greater animal reproductive efficiencies. Easier feeding Bale Slice™ makes forage more digestible and can increase average daily gain in yearling beef heifers by 23 percent.
