Border Valley is pleased to announce an upgrade will be installed in the fall of 2021 to increase the output and improve the blend coming off of our Hunterwood Technologies Chaff Press. The press is a standard press designed to compress loose grass hay or loose alfalfa hay generated from our export hay processing.
Border Valley sorts the grass hay separately from the alfalfa hay to make two different products; a grass hay mixed chaff bale and an alfalfa chaff bale. All forage material will now be blended through a new mixer box to provide a more consistent finished product. The forage is also processed through a series of magnets to sort out any potential metal contamination.
The output bale from the Chaff Press measures 45″ wide x 30″ high x 43″ long (114 cm x 76 cm x 109 cm) and weighs 300 kg, or 661 lbs. with container weights of 20 MT.
You will find the Border Valley Chaff Bale options to be low-cost alternatives for those end users looking for a quality, inexpensive grass hay or alfalfa hay product in their ration.
