can I order a HayBoss G2 Bale Identification
System? See your local AGCO
dealer. All AGCO products are sold
through authorized dealers only.
2. Will the HayBoss G2 Bale Identification
System work on all balers? The
HayBoss G2 Bale ID system is designed for large
square balers only. It will fit all AGCO
brands of large square balers.
3. I already have an automatic
applicator, will the tagger work with my existing
applicator? If you have a 2009
or newer automatic applicator, the tagger will
plug right into your existing system. All model
2008 & prior applicators do not have a
PIP & you will need to purchase an upgrade
4. How do I apply the information
on the tags to my hay operation? Every
haying operation will use this technology differently,
but the main premise is the same. Use
the information contained on the tags to create
groups of bales based on your specific criteria. Here
are a few examples:
Example A: Stacking bales brought
in from the field for inventory control. Use
the bale scanner to help you sort out organic
hay, roundup-ready hay or different types of
hay. Download the stack information into
an Excel spreadsheet to keep track of where
each type of hay is located.
Example B: Loading a Truck. Give
your customers exactly what they want and don’t
run the risk of sending them a bad bale. Use
the scanner to only pull out quality bales. While
loading, if you come across a high moisture
bale, reject it and keep on loading. After
loaded, you can print out the bale information
for each bale and give it to your buyer. The
buyer may even want a scanner so they know
how to inventory your bales when they arrive.
Example C: Feeding out bales. Bale
quality doesn’t look as good as your
seller says it is? Use the scanner in
hand-held mode and make sure the bale is what
your seller says it is.
5. I sell hay, how do these records
benefit my operation?
Inventory control. Keep track of what
you produce, the quality you produce, where
inventory is located, where it has shipped
and to whom it has shipped.
Create groups of bales based on features that
are important to you or your buyer, such as: moisture,
maturity, field of origin, cutting number,
organic, GMO crops and crop type.
Protect your business, know what bales have
been shipped or fed.
6. I am a hay buyer and have
noticed bales from certain seller have tags
on them. How do I get the information
from the tags? You will need
to purchase a scanner to access the information
on the tags. You can use the information
to sort bales for feeding, lot control, quality
control and any other feature you would like. Use
the scanner to verify that you have received
what you have paid for.
7. I produce hay for my own farm
and do not sell it. Can tagged bales
benefit me? Yes, know what quality
is coming off your fields, keep inventory for
feeding and storage as well as field records
from rented land.
