  1. Hello
    I am a hay baling contractor from Kenya, East Africa. We use the small square balers and we mainly bale red oat grass, boma Rhodes grass, and wheat and barley straws. I am keen on knowing more about the round balers available. I note that you have silage balers as well and wish to know more about them too. I am currently in St Louis for the next 5 weeks or so.
    Kindly get in touch with me.
