Inexpensively upgrade the feed value of poor-quality forage with the HaySaver Premium Hay Enhancer and nutritional supplements. The HaySaver is a tractor-mounted (3-point hitch) bale carrier that injects a 32% molasses-based liquid protein into round bales of all sizes as they're carried for feeding to cattle.
HaySaver's five steel injection spears evenly distribute in the bale (at 210 psi) one of two concentrated liquid supplement formulas — HaySaver Formula 1 and HaySaver Stress Formula. The first is designed for the overall cowherd, while the latter is specifically for starting calves, lightweight cattle, yearlings and stressed calves.
Said to be easier, less expensive and safer than anhydrous ammonia, the treatment cost is $7 for a 1,500-lb. bale.
Standard equipment includes a 30-gal. supplement tank, 3-point hitch brackets and color choices of John Deere green, New Holland blue and Massey red. Optional equipment includes a 50-gal. tank, front-end loader brackets, a hand gun with 15-ft. hose and quick coupling.
