Yes, have a feed store that sells as much as they can get locally. They say the landscapers like straw out of a rotary. Btw this is a wire tire baler, I think the bales will hold together alright. I don't have a lot of help, just my wife, a hired man and a pop up bale loader. Work never hurt me yet. :wink:

Sounds like you got a good thing goin there. I bale with an old IH wire bailer my self. It looks ruff but I wouldnt trade that thing for a new one.Holds the bails together real nice and dont have to worry bout the strings rotten or getting chewed up by mice. We sold to a lot of landscapers and a company that seeds along new road ways and sidewalks. As long as it went threw the straw blowers or covered there grass seed they didnt care what color combine it was or if it ws short or long and most people in town strawing there yards or bedding for there dogs dont know the difference or could really care less. Best of luck.Id offer my help and would love to help but kansas is a little far away for me to drive.

Something to keep in mind... and, please, this isn't meant to be red vs green. But you will get less straw from the rotary. The rotor turns a lot mor material to dust and fines that won't pick up with the windrow. This can be good, it keeps more of the fertility in the field. Keep in mind straw contains quite a bit of P and K.

But here's the deal. I mentioned my neighbor and how I buy some bales of rotary straw from him, as well as he does some custom baling for me (combined with walker). More often than not, yield is 3x to 4x the number of little bales per acre from the walker. Same guy baling, similar wheat, different combine. There may be a little more straw in the rotary bales by weight, but they are very similar. He loves his rotary, but is always amazed at the pile that comes out of the walker.

It is very concievable that if you are selling by the bale, the extra bales will more than pay for having someone harvest for you. No kidding- you will most likely have extra money left over... or in my neighborhood with straw going for $2-$3 a bale before the drought you would.

Good luck- I'm gonna put on my welding jacket now so I can stand the heat...
