Effectively Mix Feed Grades
Highline is pleased to introduce the CFR1251 Bale Pro®. When good bales are scarce or efficiency is critical, the CFR1251 provides the flexibility to blend two bales into a healthy ration.
When mixing bales, the ability to meter in grain, chop hay and bed down cattle with a single machine is still part of the fundamentals of a Highline Bale Pro®.
The CFR1251 Bale Pro® , a convenient alternate to a TMR - one operator, one machine and one tractor while eliminating the need for pre-processing.
The 1251 is a dual-chamber bale processor which offers many of the same benefits as a TMR Mixer. The 1251 provides the flexibility to process two bales at once, blending different types of forage into a healthy ration. With winter feed costs accounting for as much as 50% of total production costs, managing this variable can make or break the profitability of a cow calf operation. The ability to utilize lower quality forage, along with high quality forage maximizes the efficiency of a winter feeding program and is critical in extending feed supplies on years when good hay is in short supply. When equipped with the optional Grain Tank with MGI™ and Feed Chopper™, the CFR1251 really is an all-purpose machine that rivals a TMR in producing a mixed forage / grain ration. And, it does this with less operational costs and lower capital investment. The 1251 is also an excellent machine for bedding and that’s something a TMR can’t do. In many cattle operations, the CFR1251 may be a wiser investment than a TMR mixer.
