Feed-a-Bale is a simple attachment enabling baled straw to be distributed straight in to TMR mixer wagons and thereby significantly reducing mixing times and running costs, along with wear and tear. 

The equipment can also distribute baled straw, hay, haylage and alfalfa / Lucerne from along feed fences.

Feed-a-Bale can be fitted on all Spread-a-Bale machines dating back to 2001, both M Range and SBL Range, and is available in two sizes.

The Mini/Midi/SBL100 Feed-a-Bale weighs 28kg and folds down in two sections. When not required for feeding, it folds up on top of the machine in the stored position, a process that takes less than one minute to change from stored to feeding, without the use of any tools.

The Maxi/SBL125 Feed-a-Bale weighs 30kg and similarly folds down in two sections.



  • Feed-a-Bale folding hood: a universal extra that can be retro fitted on to any Spread-a-Bale machine.
  • Feed-a-Bale fixed hood: dedicated to feeding bales, fitted with slower rotators with high torque. Suitable for green energy/recycling and large scale-operators with feed lots.

"We’ve just bought a Maxi Spread-a-Bale and it’s proving to be super-efficient; a great investment. It’s saving a lot of time and we can now do other jobs - it used to take us half a day to bed up 20 Hestons by hand whereas now we’re spreading 8 to 10 in 30 minutes"

"We invested in a Maxi Spread-a-Bale four years ago; it’s a good bit of kit.  It would be taking me most of the day to bed up 600 head of beef cattle plus a further 200 dairy cows, whereas nowadays it’s taking us just under two hours a day to spread 14 Heston bales; and we’re working in some tight spaces which I don’t think other machines could manoeuvre around." -

Andrew Tucker

"We’re bedding up three times a week and we used to manually roll out four bales each time. Since we invested in Spread-a-Bale it’s saving us a lot of effort and time – up to 90 minutes each time we bed up. It’s also made the job a lot safer since we no longer have to get in with the stock." - 

Farm Manager, Bradford-on-Avon: 250 head beef inc 100 suckler cows
