Haylage, hay & Straw rebaling equipment, large bale to small bale rebaler

Hay, Haylage & Straw Bedding Process

The perfect system for any serious forage or bedding producer, KME are the market leaders in this type of machinery and have developed the range over 20 years of interactions with farmers. Each system is designed & built to suit the producers individual requirements from end product packaging size to dust extraction & machinery layout. Our industry leading machinery is design to break up large round bale or square bale haylage, hay or straw product and rebale into smaller airtight 20kg sealed backs.

Hay, Haylage & Straw Bedding Process


  • Full system with walking floor & bale breaker for square or round bales

  • Diverter hopper to process different materials, dictating the route to bagging press

  • Shredder for straw with throughput upto 2.5TPH Product dependant.

  • Delivery drum for dust removal

  • 100-180 packs per hour, 20-30kg bale weights dependant on product

  • Double seal heat sealing unit

  • Compatible with robot stacking system for accurately packed pallets

  • System can be finished with form fill and seal option for a fully auto line.

Initially there would be a walking floor to feed the straw / haylage large square bales (without wrap and string) up through the breaking system opening the material suitable for on feed. The haylage material would fall directly onto the feeding conveyor and into the weigh conveyor and at a pre-set weight of approx. 20kg/45lbs would feed the material direct into the baling machine and bag the material direct into a plastic bag. The bag would then be sealed manually.

When processing straw the material would be diverted away from the feed conveyor and feed directly into the shredding system. The pneumatic conveying and de-dusting system would suck / convey the shredded material from the shredder and directly through the delivery drum (De-Dusting’ unit) and onto the weigh conveyor. Once a weight of approx. 12 – 14kg has been achieved the weigh conveyor would feed the straw bedding direct into the bagging machine for compaction directly into the plastic bag which would then be manually sealed. This produces perfect clean straw bedding for many different types of animals.

If you required to process hay without shredding but de-dusting the machine would work similar to the above description for the straw but the material would divert past the shredding unit, through the de-dusting system and feed into the weigh conveyor. The material would be packed though the packing machine in the same way as above direct into the bag at a weight of approx. 10 -12kg. The hay would be whole un-chopped and would have the dust removed.


  • Ability to process multiple product types with one system

  • Dust removal removes >95% of dust and mould spores for a cleaner product

  • British designed and built machine to suit each customer.

  • increase margin by using branded bags

  • Neat compact handleable bales for resale

  • High quality end product with long shelf life

  • Maximise your income

  • Air sealed 20 kg bags, easy to handle and transport
