Barn drying: the Pacer cycle begins

, : Barn drying: the Pacer cycle begins. Technique Agricole 55(10): 8-9

Barn drying of hay results in a winter feed that is rich in nutrients. Only 1500 of the 40 000 barn drying installations in Switzerland use solar collectors. "Pacer" is a renewable energy action programme which encourages farmers to install solar collectors themselves in existing buildings.

One portion of mown hay was allowed to cure naturally before baling and storage and the rest was baled and mow dried.
