Re: Stacking Bales
Wow! I have never seen an artic tractor towing a small square baler before; wouldnt it have been a bit over powering for this job?

Re: Stacking Bales
well we needed every tractor we had,so we removed the duals and drove it at lo rpm(only 1000rpm pto on tractor)
this export hay(to Japan) needs to be verry dry (under 14%better10%) so you get only 3-5h of baling every day.

Re: Stacking Bales
Ok, I guess it makes it tricky for you with those moisture requirements.

Oh, I forgot to mention before, very nice pics :-)

is the price of export hay higher as normal hay

Re: Stacking Bales
yes it is,dont know numbers in $`s,but it has to be straith crop like thimote,lucerne or millet without any other seeds and weeds and has to be baled in small squers so the buyer can "dubbel dump" two bales as long as 2/3 from one in length them and get more into the sea container.

Re: Stacking Bales
I think the export hay job to Japan is a rather large one, especially in Western Australia (I think most of the hay they export is oaten hay in large sqaure bales).

I guess with Japan being such a densly populated country that they dont have the space to produce hay, hence it is imported from overseas countries (like Australia).

Re: Stacking Bales
thats it,and from CN and USA
the main reason is that they start to like dairy products and need so much feed now.

Re: Stacking Bales
Ok, thats interesting.

A few farmers here have started raising Wagyu cattle, which the Japanese market likes due to the marbling in the meat. I think it sells for ridiculous prices in Japan (ridiculous by our standards anyway).

I guess with this & other agricultural products, it is a case of giving the market what it requires :-)

40 sec. later 160 bales unloaded (one pic is missing)
TC : always the best to produce what the market wants,but japanese are real fussy.

Re: Stacking Bales
Yes thats right JD.

I guess they are fussy but they are prepared to pay the premium price, so I guess it's a bit of a tough decision whether or not to taget that market + I guess it depends on the types of products you deal with.

Re your picture; my sort of bale carting :-), low stress, no sweat ;-)
