Bonino - Cut and carry ma­chine

Farm World News - - Farm World 2016 -

Greg Al­lan Farm Ma­chin­ery is the Aus­tralian im­porter of the Bonino range of ma­chines.

The zero-grazer is a new ma­chine to this part of the world but has been pop­u­lar in many places in Europe.

The idea be­hind these ma­chines is to cut fresh grass for the cat­tle to eat straight away.

The prod­uct is clean and free of de­bris and dirt be­cause di­rectly af­ter cutting the pro­duce is lifted up and into the wagon.

The largest ma­chine avail­able to Aus­tralia at this time has the ca­pac­ity to hold 35 cu­bic me­tres of ma­te­rial, with a low power re­quire­ment, run­ning from only a 80/100HP trac­tor.

The self-load­ing cut­ter wag­ons are man­u­fac­tured in var­i­ous mod­els and sizes to meet the re­quire­ments of both in­ten­sive dairy and beef farm­ing, to oc­ca­sional green crop feed­ing for goats and sheep.

The prod­uct can be chopped on the way into the wagon and also on the way out through the rear dosage rollers.

All of the ma­chine’s move­ments can be con­trolled from the cabin us­ing a small switch panel.

There is an on­board hy­draulic sys­tem which means a ba­sic trac­tor can take care of op­er­a­tion.

For­age can be dis­charged di­rectly into feed­ing troughs by means of a side con­veyor belt, or by open­ing the rear door left in a pile to move into a mixer wagon.

Cur­rently Greg Al­lan has sold ma­chines to carm­ers work­ing in the South West of Vic­to­ria (Tim­boon), North­ern Vic­to­ria (Nan­neella), Gipp­s­land Vic­to­ria and the lat­est in Queens­land our from Rock­hamp­ton. All used in dif­fer­ent con­di­tions and crops. The farm­ers in Vic­to­ria cut crops rang­ing from shaf­tal, rye­grass, lucerne and sorghum with the ma­chine to di­rect feed to the cows on a ce­ment feed­pad.

The ma­chine al­lows for­age to be brought back to the an­i­mals, sav­ing the an­i­mals hav­ing to walk long dis­tances..

Greg Al­lan Farm Ma­chin­ery P/L di­rectly im­ports these ma­chines and many other var­i­ous agri­cut­lu­ral im­ple­ments via its im­port­ing arm of Co­lac Ag.
