Bonino - Cut and carry machine
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.
