One of the unique machines we feature in the Richiger Flexi-Grain Storage Systems lineup is the Richiger R950MX Grain crimping roller mill bagger. This machine can output approximately 3,150 bushels per hour, making it the largest 9ft crimper-bagger in the business.
What are the advantages of bagging moist grain?
The Richiger R950MX bagger saves time and money because once crimped and ensiled using the R950MX, the grain undergoes lactic fermentation because it has a lack of oxygen, so no further processing is required afterward.
- Therefore, you save on money and energy because your grain does not have to be dried.
-Crimped grain with this bagger is dust free, so it is healthier for you, your workers, and livestock.
- You can harvest an average of 3 weeks before conventional dates with a 950MX bagger, at the peak of nutritional value-and before most fungal diseases emerge.
The grain that comes from being crimped, then bagged, is ideal for livestock from calves to sheep along with dairy and beef cattle because they digest it better due to its high concentrated nature.
All grains that are harvested with a combine can be crimped with the Richiger R950MX bagger. In regards to moisture, Cereals are generally bagged at 30%-40% moisture, pulses at 30%-35%, and corn around 25%-33%.
This is a unique machine because it is essentially two machines in one, streamlining the process of crimping and bagging grain. Other features of the Richiger R950MX include choice of roller grooves: you can choose between 4, 6, or 9 teeth per inch for different sizes of desired grain; large industrial type tires, command station to allow you to monitor brake pressure and make sure you are packing the bags well; and dividers in the hopper so both roller mills get equal amounts of grain.
The Department of Animal Sciences from the University of Missouri had this to say in reference to corn and milo harvested early for use as high grain feed for beef cattle:
"There may be as much as 10% improvement in the feed value of the grain for cattle. Field losses at harvest may be reduced by 5-10%. Losses average about 13% for 15% moisture grain vs. 2% for 26% moisture grain. (In regards to field grain losses diminishing when combining ahead of time)."
