Chinook Hay Dryers were invented to maximize the quality of your hay, increase your productivity and reduce weather risk. Chinook Hay Dryers were created by hay farmers for hay farmers. Chinook Hay Dryers can accept 3’x3’, 3’x4’ and Bale Baron Bundles. The benefits of a Chinook Hay Dryer are endless:


  • Maximize Quality - Maintain 85-90% of your harvest, yielding a 15-20% increase in product quality over traditional hay drying methods.
  • Increase Productivity - Not only can you hay for more hours, you can extend your season by days. Harvesting hay around 20% moisture, then drying it, has shown an increase of 1.5% higher protein levels.  
  • Reduce Risk - Take the weather out of the equation! Minimize your crop's vulnerability to mold, dust & spoilage.
