The fundamental conditions for smooth hay drying without complications is a functioning hay box. Due to new developments, building a hay box has significantly changed in recent years.
Reversing flaps on the ventilator are par for the course - as well as using round instead of square timber for placing the steel mats on.
Drying the hay in a haybox is generally seen as easier than drying in round bales. Every newly built hay drying system should have built-in hood suction!
Advantages over round bale drying method:
- generally easier to dry than in round bales (material density)
- less work intensive (no pressing, no rolling out the bales)
- easier feeding process using the hay crane hole straight into the stables
