HSR wins awards in Hay Championships
The Hay Gala and Hay Championships 2016 were a complete success. Karl Neuhofer and his family have achieved something wonderful in the Salzburg Congress.
Successful farmers with HSR drying systems mounted the winner's rostrum.
A first prize as well as a third place for the Fink family from Seekirchen! The Steger family from Radstadt distinguished themselves by gaining second place in the energy hay category despite the extremely difficult conditions in the mountains.
We are really thrilled that HSR farmers took first, second and third places.
The Fink family won at the Hay Championships 2016 with a HSR system
That make us proud! The Fink family from Seekirchen won the prize and then took a third place! These are farmers facing the toughest challenges and a HSR hay drying system to match those challenges.
Even our competitors, who donated and presented the first prize this year, had nothing but praise for the peak performance of our customers.
The Fink family in Seekirchen operate a 57 hole round bale drying system on two levels. The hay is dried with a pure bred HSR system and delivers the best hay without modern hood suction or old-fashioned ovens.
The combination of a HSR 100XL dehumidifier and two HSR 1000 / HSR 1120 ventilators is not only to the animals' taste, it also won the judges' approval.
The Fink family's drying plant dries round bales with a gross weight of up to 1,000 kg. Prof. Gotthard Wirleitner identified the drying costs: in the ideal case only 0.7 cents or 50kW / ton hay.
It has not been in vain that the Fink family's plant has for some time now played the major role in the HSR round bale informational video.

Hay drying under the most difficult conditions
At the last hay championships in 2014 the State of Vorarlberg took the glittering prizes; this year it was the turn of Salzburg farmers to mount the winners' rostrum.
The Steger family from the Grundnerhof in Radstadt in Tauernstraße achieved a sensational second place for their energy hay. Their HSR system is small but effective!
On the Steger family farm, in the heart of the mountains, the conditions for drying hay are extremely challenging. Nonetheless, with the help of HSR the Steger family took the bold step of changing from silage to hay drying. And it was the correct step.
The HSR 30 dehumidifier and the HSR 800 ventilator manage on a very low power supply of approx. 20 kW. This is sufficient for outstanding farmers to win recognition against obviously overwhelming competition.
Some time ago we introduced the Steger family and their farm on our hay blog:
