Bale Direct

The Glenvar Bale Direct System developed by the Shields family at Wongan Hills (WA) consists of a large square baler directly attached to the harvester that constructs bales from the chaff and straw residues during harvest.

This system serves to both capture weed seeds and bale harvest residues for livestock feed. AHRI studies have determined that 95% of annual ryegrass seeds that enter the front of the harvester are collected and removed from fields using this system.

It’s a great system for those who have access to a market for the bales close to their farm.
