This product can be used in the following applications:
The Background: Our customer is a farmer looking for a simple and reliable way to measure the moisture content in hay.
The Problem: Like almost everything farmers do, taking in hay is dependent upon specific environmental conditions. After hay is cut it must be dried before it’s baled. If the moisture content of the hay is too high, it may result in the hay spoiling or even spontaneously combusting due to heat generated by chemical reactions as the wet hay breaks down. If the moisture level of the hay is too low, they hay will lack nutrients and crumble to dust. Ideally, the hay should have a moisture content of around 18 to 20%.
The Solution: We recommended the Delmhorst FX-2000 moisture meter which was developed specifically for high-volume hay producers. The FX-2000 can be fitted with bale prods to test individual bales or with a short pin probe which allows testing hay in the windrow prior to baling providing the convenience of on-the-go monitoring. It also includes a power adapter that can be connected to the power supply of a tractor.
