Farmer and founder Josef Reindl from Salzburg, Austria, has been developing innovative and highly efficient hay drying systems ever since he took over the farm in 1988 - over 30 years ago. In the beginning, the focus lay on developing a powerful and energy-efficient hay drying system for his own hay and dairy farm containing over 60 dairy cows and 60 young cattle.
To make the progress gained in hay drying available to other farmers, the HSR Heutrocknung company was founded in 2009. Going back to where it all began in 1690, the Bartlgut - Josef's heritage farm was transformed into an interactive show farm for visitors from all over the world in 2012. It also serves as the ideal test environment for all of HSR's new hay drying innovations to this day. The HSR Heutrocknung company headquarters, at which significant parts of the production take place, was newly built in 2016. Product highlights along with new and used machines are presented across 700m2 of modern exhibition space. We would be delighted to welcome you at your visit to our show farm and our company headquarters.
The company development and the technical advancement of our sites demonstrate a continuous parallel, which can be summarised in our mission statement:
