“After harvest, we round baled Calmer BT Chopper Residue and it was great. We also grazed cattle and they loved it! We are really satisfied with them.”

The Highest Quality Cornstalk Bales

Bale corn Stalks

For maximum value

if you are baling cornstalks for your cattle operation, upgrade your corn head with calmer’s chopping stalk rolls for the highest-quality cornstalk bales. 

Our confetti-like residue helps save time and improves the quality of cornstalk bales for your livestock operation. Cattle farmers rave how easy it is to v rake the material without having to set the rake too aggressively or chop stalks prior to baling.

Because Calmer BT Chopper® Stalk Rolls shear cornstalks into two halves, the inner pith is exposed for quicker dry time after harvest, improved nutrient value, and to efficently wick moisture when used as bedding.

As one farmer said, “It rakes like hay, and it bales like hay.”

what They’re Saying

Farmers Baling

“We do 150-200 cornstalk bales a year behind the BT Chopper for bedding and roughage. I really like the benefit of the smaller pieces for bedding and also the manure spreads more evenly. “

After harvest we round baled Calmer BT Chopper Residue and it was great. We also grazed cattle and they loved it! We are really satisfied with them.”

Kevin Brown

“Baling behind the BT Chopper is great. green stalks dry very quickly so you’re not waiting long for the stalks to dry. Wait 3 days or so and v-rake the residue and you’ll be getting the best feed and bedding quality out of the plant.”
