More farmers choose Hustler than any other brand of bale feeders, processor or unroller. Because they’re built tougher, more reliable, feed both round and square bales, maximize feed use, minimize feed waste, save you time and are a pleasure to use.
Farmers have a lot to contend with. The weather could prove to be unsettled throughout the year, your livestock may succumb to a disease, crops could fail and wildfires could change the entire outlook for your whole area. Those are the negatives, of course, and for each of these, there are countless positives and things that go right every day and every year for so many.
However, what we all recognise is the need to make hay while the sun shines, as the old saying goes, which is why investing in bale up feeders is a smart decision that empowers you to make the most of each day, your resources and bolster the health of your livestock.
At Hustler Equipment, we exist to help farmers achieve more every day. We believe in good practices where farming is concerned and our mandate is to identify key ways in which we can improve and innovate around the existing technology currently in use so that more efficient ways of achieving a more consistent, positive outcome are achieved. We are proud to say that thousands of farmers have already changed their financial outlook by implementing our superior farm machines on their land and we have plenty of videos right here on the site so that you can hear it directly from them.
Our team strive to inspire the community that we develop our farm machinery for. We have won innovation awards, have many university endorsements from the USA and with 10,000 machines in the field working and 600 dealers dotted across the globe, the quality of the machines that we produce is in no doubt.
Having a great idea for a new version or upgrade to an existing machine is one thing but creating and realising the ultimate functionality goals that you envision is quite something else. This is why our team love nothing more than to get out of the design studio and engage directly with the farming community. Through your experiences and eyes, we gain the ability to see our machines differently and appreciate where improvements are needed and greater efficiency is desired.
The team at Hustler Equipment treat our bale up hay feeders in the same way as any other machine that rolls off our production line. The process does not end once we have implemented the research that we gathered and combined it successfully with our innovative designs and quality materials. We test each item extensively before it is made available for sale.
Again, this process does not take place within a vacuum, but instead, our product concepts are sent to all major markets for thorough testing. We want to be absolutely certain that they will perform with all product types, perform in all applications they are required for, can sustain fatigue and prove durable and resilient over time. What’s more, we also analyse and test them using computer technology to ensure that they will last and add value.
While all of the above may seem complex, trust us, it is necessary to achieve a design and outcome that is simple, easy to use and does the things that it is supposed to do right each and every time once in your hands. We are motivated by the idea of simplifying everyday life on the farm and affording farmers every chance to make the most of their time.
Choosing Hustler Equipment for your hay feeders and bale up needs is a sure-fire way to prepare for those days that prove a little more challenging than others ad have the means of adapting so that you stay on track. We look forward to supplying you with a superior machine in the not too distant future.
Most of the savings are achieved by a reduction in the amount of bale which is wasted.
Feed wastage can be caused by various factors:
1) The bale is not teased apart enough making it harder for stock to eat.
2) Animals laying or trampling on fodder.
3) Unfinished bales inside ring feeders due to poor ground conditions, not allowing animals to reach the leftover bale.
4) Stock rejecting feed because of dirt, mud or other contaminants.
Savings can be made by feeding the right amount of the bale and retaining the rest for the next feed. By feeding over a larger area compare to a ring feeder, there is less competition between the animals.
Typical savings achieved by using a Hustler Chainless bale feeder are between 15-40%, depending on your existing feeding system (chain feeders typically save 10-35%).
