Here it is difficult to get good dry stalks in fall. Everyone round bales stalks, low value high volume deal.
Chopping up the stalks right helps a lot.
Gathering mostly the husks if the combine drops them in 2 rows instead of spreading them. More leaves and husks, less stalks.
We would square bale the husks after shelling ear corn, made nice feed, but was only a couple dozen bales of soft husks.
NH had an attachment to flail chop the stalks directly into the square baler, I saw one at an auction once.
But not many bale stalks with a small square baler. It is pretty hard on the machine, depending how tough your stalks are.
It does work tho.
