Feed efficiency

Input is output. To produce milk or meat efficiently, an animal needs top-quality feed. A fresh and tasty portion is crucial. Making the right choices before and during forage harvesting has a positive influence on the quality of feed. Your harvest is one of the ingredients for optimal milk and meat production.

Quality through capacity

Top-quality feed is partly determined by the speed at which crops can be harvested. This determines the consistency of the feed, the retention of nutrients and the success of preservation. From mowing to raking and from loading to wrapping: all steps must be aligned with each other for optimal harvesting and good-quality feed.

All of our forage harvesting machines are developed with a view to quality through capacity. This means that you can reap the greatest possible benefits at harvest time.


All of our products for in the field complement each other


The best harvest is obtained by mowing at the right time. This is how you determine the energy, nutrients and structure of the crops based on your animals’ feed requirements. With our mowers, you can be sure of the lowest possible power requirements combined with the highest possible capacity.


Obtain the perfect dry-matter content in your crops quickly by speeding up the drying process. By doing so, you influence the consistency and the quality of your silage. Obtain 50% more capacity with the unique hook tines on our tedders.


Rake your crops as neatly as possible into the perfect swath and minimise undesirable mould and bacteria in the feed. The working width of our rakes is easily adjustable to create the ideal swath width for the next step in the harvest process.


Harvest a large quantity of crops from the land and cut and transport them in one go with just one person. Retaining nutrients with no unnecessary damage to crops. We offer loader wagons in different configurations and always with the best treatment of crops as the guiding principle.


Good and consistent compacting speeds up the start of the crop fermentation process. This is how you retain the crops’ essential nutrients for the best-quality feed. Our balers offer both the best compacting and the highest pick-up capacity. For good-quality feed.


Preserve the quality of your crops and minimise heat and oxygen damage. By wrapping the bales of crops as quickly as possible, you do not give oxygen a chance to contaminate the fermentation process. Our wrappers guarantee both speed and quality..
