With warmer weather well and truly here, along with the grass growing & most farmers having already made several cuts for the season we thought we'd share a few tips to help make your hay and forage making season a success!
When it comes to storing your wrapped round bales on their flat or round end, there are many opinions - all of which have some very good reasons. In this blog we aim to go over why we believe storing bales on their flat end makes the most sense.

We're in our second year of operation with the Rata Beet Bucket now.
We've just been transitioning some weaner heifers to beet over the past few weeks so it’s been getting a lot of work just recently, it certainly saves us a lot of time and particularly a lot of man hours, so all in all the buckets done exactly what we asked of it.

I'm impressed with the results these discs give, they contour the ground & hills while staying in the ground actually disking, even in this harder, dryer stony ground so I'm pretty pleased.
Hydraulic cut adjustment is awesome as you can adjust it on the go.
Great product & machine!

I got hold of Rata when I needed a Silage Grab, Forks & Quick Hitch. From past experience I had been impressed with the durability & simplicity of the gear. The Silage Grab has performed very well & the Quick Hitch makes the job so much easier, this one is well up there! Very high rated - so I can virtually pick up any load.
They’ve definitely helped me out!

We do about 4,000 individual wrapped bales per year, so its important to us to have Rata softhands to handle them, as they are really reliable, they don’t break & are definitely the best brand we’ve ever used!
Because we've found Rata gear to be so reliable we also have multiple sets of their Bale Forks & Versatile Grapples as well!

I bought a Rata Panerazer a bit over a year ago & have had great results out of it. Crops seem to get established earlier & also hang on for longer when its dry. We’ve also found when we have heavy rains & would normally get a bit of scouring… where we’ve used the Panerazer there’s been no run off at all.
It’s a great bit of kit!

Due to the size of the operation we really need gear we can rely on to get the job done.
We have a range of Rata Equipment from Pallet Forks & Bale Forks, also about 13 or 14 Grabs across the range of our dairy farms.
