Oncoming rain clouds can ruin a hay producer’s day. That’s why silage is quickly becoming a preferable option for producers everywhere who are tired of waiting on good weather and want high-quality forage for their cattle. According to Michigan State University Extension, silage harvested within five days of the optimal time has a feed quality advantage of $26.46 per ton over dry hay. For some producers, that’s reason enough to make the switch.

Of course, it takes a tough baler to handle the added tonnage of high-moisture hay.

The Vermeer Generation 3 604 Pro baler was specially designed and built from the ground up in Pella, Iowa, to handle the rigors of baling wet, heavy crops — combining strength and smart features while still giving you the versatility of having a baler that can bale dry hay.
