Spread-a-Bale can help you improve your livestock health and welfare by ensuring your animals have the optimum quality living environment.
Young animals are very boisterous and inquisitive; it can be a dangerous task spreading straw in the pen by hand, using a Spread-a-Bale is a safer and more efficient option. Yards and pens can be spread from outside and over the animals. The spreading operation itself is quieter, safer, more efficient and much quicker than either manual spreading or using a chopper blower or similar machine.
Compared with other mechanical forms of straw spreading, it is also far less power-hungry, which helps cut the unit’s carbon footprint. Spread-a-Bale helps keep the unit much cleaner by reducing dust levels, which is very helpful to the health and welfare of the livestock, as well as the staff. The quality and longevity of the bed itself Spread-a-Bale distributes a consistent, even depth layer of straw across the whole pen. It leaves the bed fluffy and open, so it is more comfortable and animals remain dry for longer. This helps reduce disease and pathogenic infections.
Spread-a-Bale removes the physical danger of projectiles being spat out. If stones are picked up when loading a bale they will fall to the floor as the bale is moved towards the spreading rotors. Stones within the bale will not be expelled with enough force to cause damage.Spread-a-Bale Official Site
