CropSaver: the safe and effective method of hay preservation
New Holland CropSaver™ hay preservative is a chemically buffered and neutralized proprionic acid used to help preserve all types of hay. Used with a New Holland applicator, CropSaver enables you to bale your hay at a maximum 30 percent moisture level. What’s more, it’s safe to store outside and won’t freeze or lose effectiveness over time.
Applying a low level of New Holland CropSaver will retain the hay’s natural green color and fresh smell.
The below chart illustrates the benefits of using CropSaver:
|Moisture Percentage||Results with CropSaver||Results without CropSaver|
|16-22 percent||Natural green color and fresh smell is retained.||Discoloration, loss of fresh smell|
|23-26 percent||No risk of toxic mold. Hay quality is maintained and preserved.||Heats to over 120˚F. Mold forms and quality drops significantly.|
|Over 27 percent||No risk of overheating and spontaneous combustion. Hay quality is maintained and preserved.||Heats to over 140˚F. Hay will turn black and may combust.|
- Safe to Feed to Livestock: Propionic acid, the main ingredient in CropSaver, is an organic acid occurring naturally in horse’s gastrointestinal tract and in ruminants, so it’s safe to feed to your livestock.
- Worry-Free Application: CropSaver’s gentle, but effective ingredients will not cause corrosion on your expensive baling equipment, and won’t clog application equipment.
