Seen a small collector that dumped small little piles for field grazing.it worked with a counterbalance weight and was on a conventional combine(9600),just wondering if anyone has tried to do this on a rotary JD.Would need to collect chaff before it’s mixed with the straw discharge.Would still like to chop and spread straw.Maybe I’d be better off to find an old conventional for this?

There is a farmer between Olds and Calgary that has been doing that. Dont know his name. Should be something on the inter webs. What combine do you have?

Go to - Canadian Cattleman.ca and crop residue recycling. There is a good article there. Seems you would still have to hot wire your field or the cows will just wander all over. Unless you have an old JD8820 and drove like crazy I think the cows will starve to death!
