As far as grinding services we are still working on establishing specific days for each area but our plan is to service Western NY, The Fingerlakes Region, Central and Northern NY, Eastern NY and Vermont each on a separate day. While we are still figuring out this schedule based on where we establish customers we can grind for you when you need us. Just call and talk about when works best for you. Hay delivery is available anywhere in the Northeast.
The grinder is equipped with a 25' stacking belt so we can grind directly in to a barn, bunk or pile neatly with much less loss compared to grinders that blow the hay out. It is also equipped with a grapple to self load the tub so all you need to do it have the hay or straw bales close enough to the grinder for us to grab. If you want strings off its not a problem our grapple can pick loose bales and we can de-string for you.
We travel with 3 sets of screens to grind different lengths. The machine has the ability to grind any type of hay, straw, corn/soybean fodder, bailage (wet bales) and dry or high moisture corn (we can grind corn to flour/900 microns) . Our grapple boom is equipped with an electronic scale and printer that is very accurate so as we feed the bales in to the tub we will give you a printed running tally of the weight processed.
If you are interested in trying this service we will be happy to come and do a 5 ton free demo grind for you, if you like what we are doing we can continue and grind whatever amount you want if not the first 5 ton is free
To custom grind we charge $15 per ton/ minimum 20 ton per stop. Rate goes down to $12 per ton if we grind more than 50 ton per stop and corn grinding may be less depending on the tonnage.
For customers who purchase hay or straw we deliver it to you already ground up on our 150 yard walking floor trailer. The advantages of buying hay/straw like this is that we can eliminate several weekly tasks related to hay purchasing/grinding as well as free up storage space.
When buying the product already ground up you also eliminate grinding losses that can be 5 to 10% of the weight of what you purchased in bale form. The types of hay that we offer delivered are listed below.
All hay/straw is priced by the ton except bedding hay depending on the customer's location for delivered price. Tell us what your desired length is and we will grind specific to your needs. We will also provide tests on batches of hay.
