Growing and harvesting hay can be a profitable enterprise, but limiting losses due to moisture is the key to success. Moisture must be controlled if profits are to be maximized with every harvest. Therefore, one of the hay producer's most important tools is the moisture tester. The electronic moisture meter will keep you informed of the interior moisture content of your hay at all times.
As a hay producer, you know that excess moisture can lead to mold growth and spontaneous combustion. You also know that not enough moisture is bad for your product as well. Why take chances by guessing about moisture content? You can know exactly how moist your hay is when you use a hay moisture meter. We currently carry hay and grain moisture meters from Agratronix, a name you know you can trust You can purchase your electronic moisture meter online or by paying us a visit at our Aurora, Ohio location.
A great sampler! I've used multiple core probes previously and I love this design. I'm in the animal nutrition industry and can "run circles" around those using traditional core samplers when probing lots of bales. HOWEVER, beware. With today's more powerful cordless drills and balers that can pack a tighter core, these probes can twist off at the upper end where the tube is cut open to fill the bag. It could use a thicker tube wall with reinforcement.
BUT, I purchased a second one and plan to back off on the power a bit.
I bought this to sample my horse hay. It is very well built and easy to use. A high quality product and the best price I could find on the internet. Thanks Mytee!
Does great with temperature, but I work with mostly grass hay. It is calibrated for all alfalfa so the moisture numbers are a little off, which is to be expected. Simple learning curve. Easy to use and function.
This is a really high quality moisture tester for the price. Many other brands are 4 times the cost or more. This one is built to last and even for travel. Really pleased with it!
