Bale Processors

CFR1251 Bale Pro ®

Effectively Mix Forages without the cost of a TMR

Highline takes precision ration delivery and flexibility to a higher level with the CFR1251. This model represents the future utilizing dual chambers and independent settings allowing forage blending for optimal performance and the highest economic benefit. Crop residues and hay are combined, chopped and mix thoroughly with the grain portion meeting animal requirements. Whether field or bunk feeding the CFR1251 puts premium animal care in your hands.

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 CFR1251 is a dual-chamber bale processor which offers many of the same benefits as a TMR Mixer. The CFR1251 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 CFR1251 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.
