Hi Iím looking at buying a new holland hayliner 68 for baling 400 cornstalk bales a year. Does anyone have experience baling cornstalks with a hayliner 68? Do they bale good bales and tie them good? Thanks

It probably would handle it. My recollection from my dairy farm youth was that about half of them turned into a banana and fell apart by the time we got them where we wanted them in the hay barn. That was with a #12 Massey. After that experiment we flail chopped them and blew them in the barn loose. The end result was about the same. Itís worth a try and I would guess it will take some adjusting between too tight and too loose. The calfís and cows liked the cornstalk bedding and ate a fair amount of it.

Balled about 400 bales with a 46 IH this year. Make sure you back your tension off, not sue how it will work for you with the fork feeder vs the anger on the IH and Deere, dependig on the conditions I would have some build up where the packer finger would push the material into the bale chamber. The person the harvested my corn had chopping rolls on the head so I just raked the material about a day after harvest and would let it sit a day before trying to bale. Most would probably agree that a 68 NH is a better baler than a 46 IH so you should be able to accomplish what you want with this but you will need plenty of pashence and I would not planning on getting the job done to fast.

Not a NH but I baled a good many with a 2 different 24t Deere balers. You need to get them dry and do not use a wheel rake as to much dirt gets in the windrow. I have a 24t with a no5 flail attachment that we baled about a 1000 bales a year with when we had dairy cows. You still had to mow them to get them dry and rake them in small windrows but the flails sucked them and shredded them again making perfect bedding. Much better than oat straw. Did get 2 or 3 busted bales per load. Now with beef cows we round bale all the stalks. Tom

To have bedding for our heifers, we hire a medium (3x3) square baler. Most of the time we need to add some acid to keep from molding. 2019 was a wet year and difficult to get anything dry enough. We bale a couple hundred this spring to have enough for this winter.

I have learned different people in different areas of the country practice various farming methods that may sound strange or unconventional. That said, no one in my area squares corn stalks. I have a decent amount of Amish people in my area and I swear some of them may recycle the lint from the clothes dryer and THEY do not even square bale corn stalks. If I felt the urge to bale stalks, I would not use a 55 year old baler thats for sure.

I tried it one time with a New Holland 275. The bales were pretty hard to handle. The stalks are so course that it just doesn't pack a good smooth squared off bale.

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.

Today's Featured Article - Restoration Story: 1929 McCormick-Deering 10-20 - by Randal Simmon. On July 4th 1998 my dad and I was sitting on the front porch when he said that he was going to sell his two 10-20's to a junk man. He said that the junk man was going to give him $500 for both of them but he hadn't received the money for them yet. So I went into the house and wrote him a check for $500 and bought them myself and said now they are mine. He had bought them about five years before thinking that he was going to restore them himself. After five years sitting in the barn, he changed h ... [Read Article]
