CFR651 Bale Pro® - "This is the first bale processor I have ever owned and it has exceeded my expectations in all regards. It’s hard to imagine a winter of feeding without it now!"
Cody Burke of Newell, South Dakota
The livestock is split among 2 ranches with the sheep at our place and the cattle at their place. We feed out our own heifer calf and ewe lamb replacements through the winter until there is grass in the pastures in the spring.
We purchased the Highline CFR651 in the fall of 2016. Its primary use has been to fine chop alfalfa hay to feed to our lambs. It was a tough year to find good quality hay to feed to our lambs after the recent drought we had been through. Having the fine chop, we were able to feed coarser 1st cutting alfalfa to our lambs and create a feed that was much more palatable to them. They did amazing over the winter. We also found out how easily we could use it to feed the main bunch of ewes this winter when the snow got too deep to graze in the pasture.
Having the CFR651 allowed me to feed quickly every day without having to stop and load feeders with hay already ground. With it I am able to pull in the hay yard, grab the bales I need and go.
