So far we have talked about the enhanced animal performance and increased profits as some of the advantages of compacting forage. But let us mention today one of the advantages that applies to all materials and perhaps will be the most evident: The Logistics.
It is not only about conserving better (due to the oxygen barrier), but also about lower volume - reaching, depending on the material and dry matter, the 3:1 ratio or in other words a volume reduction of almost 70%! These guarantees easy market access, you will be able to transport more in less space. And thanks to the lower volume, it turns out that the transport will be more efficient, cheaper and more environmental friendly. Improve handling, storage and transport!

Huge savings in logistics and transport
Some concrete numbers on the matter: Erlend Røhnebæk is a norwegian farmer and producer of forage for selling. He bales his forage with an Orkel MP2000 Compactor. By doing so, he has huge savings in logistics and transport: Baled material can be stored anywhere, and up to 12 months. By transporting the material in bales, he gets almost three times as much on each semitrailer (11 tons per semitrailer transported in big bags vs. 30 tons of high density forage in bales! That is easy math!
Improved logistics equals easy market access
