Large Square Bale Nutrition Injection System
For more than 15 years, thousands of cattle operators have turned “bad hay into good hay” with our 3-point hitch, front end loader and portable injectors.
New from Baleplus, the Large Square Bale Injector is custom-designed to inject BalePlus ProteinPlus™ ALL SEASON™ nutrition supplement formula into any large square bale.
Tractor-mounted for 3-point hitch and front end loaders, the new injector spreads BalePlus rumen-balanced proteins, energy, vitamins and minerals throughout 60-70% of the bale in 30 seconds, making it nutritionally rich for immediate feeding or to be stored for later feeding. It is equipped with a 300-PSI roller pump.
Set the valve to “Mix” and the BalePlus™ Large Square Bale Injector mixes ProteinPlus™ ALL SEASON™ Nutrition Formula and water for you. Change the valve to “Inject” and you are ready to add BalePlus™ protein, energy, vitamins and minerals to any forage.
Any large square baled forage, even CRP, goes from bad hay to good hay in a matter of seconds and is ready to feed or store.
Founded in 1999, BalePlus™ has served thousands of large and small cattle operations in the United States, Canada and other countries, with regional production facility partners in the USA and Canada. Tom Cox is the engineer, cattle nutritionist and inventor of the original, patented baled forage injection system, U.S. Patent 6,126,985: “Method, Apparatus and Composition for Treating a Bale of Hay.”For more information visit
