Growers impatiently waiting to get into fields may want to scrutinize several photo galleries of the latest forage equipment.

To help sort through the various new machines, start with Hay & Forage Grower’s 17 Hay Harvesting Machines To Check Out. It lists information on recently released mowers, mower-conditioners, rakes and tedders.

Balers, introduced this past fall and winter, can be compared in the photo gallery,6 Of The Newest Balers For The 2014 Haying Season.

A variety of hay harvesting and handling equipment can be checked over in two other photo galleries. One is Forage Machines From World Ag Expo; the other is Forage Handling Equipment For 2014.

A website link to each corresponding manufacturer or dealer of a particular machine is listed along with highlights of its specifications.
