HAYTECH solution

What options are available to me if there's no internet at my barn?

The HAYTECH mobile base station can utilize the mobile network (2G and 4G) to directly transmit data measured by the probes to your application, eliminating the necessity for an internet network.

The base station serves a crucial function in the HAYTECH solution. It acts as an intermediary between your temperature measurement probes and your monitoring application. It facilitates the transfer of data collected from bales to the cloud, enabling you to access it on your smartphone.

Our HAYTECH system is designed to be Plug and Play. Just create an account, plug in the base station, and position the probes in bales. Should you require assistance, a consultant will be on hand to guide you.

Indeed, our coverage extends worldwide, with customers spanning across the globe.

Yes, HAYTECH supports you in better controlling the quality of your forage, which can lead to significant savings on your annual budget allocated to concentrated food.

Our application HAYTECH Insight Service

Can I track the live progress of my forage quality over time?

Yes, you can monitor the live progress of your forage quality and nutritional value over time using the HAYTECH feed value indicator in the HAYTECH Insight Service.

Yes, the application allows for the customization of alert levels to suit your specific requirements. You can adjust these levels to adapt to varying risks and conditions.

Absolutely. HAYTECH insight service offers configurable notifications, ensuring that you receive alerts tailored to the risks and situations you deem important.

Yes, the HAYTECH insight service allows for extensive customization of settings. This includes configurations related to notifications, alert levels, user permissions, and more, providing you with full control over your monitoring environment.

Yes, you can map each storage area within your facility with precision, enabling efficient management and organization of your resources.

With just a single click, you can open the temperature history tracking feature within the HAYTECH system. This allows for effortless monitoring and analysis of temperature trends for individual forage bales.

Our Probes

Is there a guarantee on your hay monitoring probes?

All our probes come with a service contract covering maintenance, replacement, and recycling throughout their entire life cycle. This ensures you have a consistently functional system at all times.

Absolutely, specifically designed for quick and snag-free installation in hay bales.

To ensure robustness and extend the lifespan of our HAYTECH probes, we’ve chosen not to feature direct temperature displays on the probes themselves. However, you have the convenience of monitoring the temperature measured by each probe anytime and from anywhere through your intuitive application.

Our digital probes eliminate the need for calibration, offering a substantial advantage over analog probes that experience significant temperature drift over time. You can rely on consistently accurate data without the need for calibration.

The probes are made to be seen so they are not forgotten inside the bale. You just grab them and stick them out.

No, they do not. However, moisture is not the determining factor for quantifying microbial activity. Temperature monitoring is more pertinent for preventing fire hazards and assessing variations in hay nutritional value.

Hay management

Does checking hay bale temperature right after baling and waiting for it to drop before field pickup reduce storage degradation and fire risk?

Yes, measuring hay bale temperature post-baling and allowing it to cool helps minimize degradation during storage and lowers the risk of fire. This process, known as “curing” or “cooling,” prevents moisture retention and potential issues like mold growth and nutrient loss. Adopting this practice contributes to maintaining hay quality and safety in storage. However, even when bales are stored after cooling down, the storage conditions and the stacking process can initiate a second fermentation cycle. This secondary cycle has the potential to compromise hay quality or pose fire risks, similar to the initial fermentation cycle.

It is recommended to have a moisture content of less than 14% when baling. It’s essential to note that moisture is not the sole determinant for preventing hay heating during storage. While the recommended moisture level is crucial, other factors such as nutritional content and storage conditions play significant roles in ensuring safe storage.

It is very simple to insatal in fields as well. Probes can be placed on the bales, and a base station equipped with a solar panel allows real-time access to the situation on the field. This eliminates the need to operate from within a building.

The classification of hay bales as “high density” can vary, but it is generally acknowledged that a density of 12 to 20 pounds of hay per cubic foot (lb/ft³) falls within the high-density range for round hay bales. This classification is determined by the compression and tightness of the baled hay. Various factors, including the type of forage, baling equipment, and bale size, can influence this density. Higher density bales are often preferred for their efficiency in storage, transport, and feeding, as they contain more forage per unit volume. It’s important to note that specific recommendations may vary based on regional practices and the type of forage being baled.
