As they say “the making is in the raking.” Modern rotary hay rakes provide gentle, uniform raking that produce even and fluffy windrows to provide good air flow and even drying. Rotary rakes are far superior to the old side delivery rakes.
Here is a video of our JD tractor with Krone 710/26T twin rotary rake, which can do 2 single rows for initial raking or put 2 into one or put 4 into 1 if needed, when it is near ready for baling.
Current conditions, with high daily humidity are not the best for hay drying, but the the fluffy, even windrows formed by these modern rotary rakes help to maximise drying.
The quicker hay is dried down the better the quality, the less bleaching, the better leaf retention and the less weather risk you run. All which mean higher returns.
