Answers to Frequently Asked Questions
Many of you who inquire about BalePlus™ Forage Injection want to know more about how Bale Injection works and why. Our system, including both the injection equipment and the concentrated nutritional formulas, is now being used by cattlemen in 48 states. Here’s what many have asked:
Q: INJECT versus Pour On?
A: Many ask if they can buy the ALL SEASON™ Concentrate and not the injector. We sell it, but “pouring on” will not saturate the bale properly and will waste nutrition.
Our injectors are intended to “HIDE” the ALL SEASON™ Protein, Energy, vitamins and minerals in the bale to make the cows work for it and, therefore, consume more forage and clean up poor bales. We guarantee the “System,” which means the ALL SEASON™ injected with our BalePlus™ injectors. With more than 2000 customers in the US and Canada, we have NEVER had a complaint that our system didn’t work.
Q: How does it work?
A: In a nutshell, cows prefer to chew and cud on forage rather than use lick tanks, protein tubs and other unnatural supplements. Chewing on forage is the natural thing to do. Lick tanks and protein tubs have serious drawbacks.
Therefore, It makes better sense to put what cows like and need into available forage like wheat straw, cornstalks, CRP, anything you can bale. Our portable and tractor-mounted injectors “hide” BalePlus™ ProteinPlus™ formulas deep in the bale to make cows work for it. The good result is cows eat forage they may have refused, getting the leftover feed value from that forage (saving the cost of those bales) and adding more Crude Protein, energy, vitamins and minerals for approximately $8 ton.
Our ProteinPlus™ Concentrates mix with water and provide protein, energy, vitamins and minerals in bales to gain feed value from any forage. ProteinPlus™ smells good and tastes good because of our added flavors and pure cane molasses base.
BalePlus™ is the most common sense, money saving, feed idea available and has been proven over more than 25 years since Tom Cox, a Georgia cattleman invented and patented it (U.S. Patent 6,126,985 “Method, Apparatus and Composition for Treating a Bale of Hay.”
Q: Does the formula” go bad?” Or, Freeze?
A: ProteinPlus™ concentrates stored in a cool, dry place in their original unopened containers (2 ½ gallon jugs) last for years. They do not freeze in their container or in bales. Once mixed with water, they could freeze in very cold temperatures, but it does not decrease its effectiveness. We recommend you “over treat” your last few bales to empty the system, or take the same care with “the mix” as you would with your tractor-storing it in your barn. In warm weather, left in the tank with water, it will ferment in a few days.
A: Yes. Both injectors and ProteinPlus™ concentrates are replacement warranted for one year.
Q: Are other Cattlemen Using BalePlus™?
A: With more than 20 years in business, we have thousands of satisfied customers throughout the USA and other countries.
Q: Can I reorder concentrates anytime?
A: BalePlus™ injectors and ProteinPlus™ concentrates are available all year long by phone: 706-889-5990; and by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may reorder ProteinPlus™ concentrates by the pallet (twenty 2 ½ gallon jugs) for $549 plus shipping; or by the 250 gallon tote, for $1999 plus shipping.
Q: How do I learn to use and maximize the system?
A: We provide complete, easy-to-follow instruction materials in video, brochure and label form on the injectors. We also are available by phone to answer questions, if you are “in the field” 706- 889-5990.
Q: Can I Treat other folks’ bales?
A: Yes, and make good money at it. Your out-of-pocket cost for treating a bale is about $4 per1000 pound bale. We suggest you charge between $8 and $10, plus some fuel charge if greater than a few miles.
Q: Can I eliminate all other supplements?
A: BalePlus™ does not claim to be the “end-all” answer to feeding. We suggest you keep your current feed system in place and observe your herd’s feeding preferences and results for at least 30 days. What most BalePlus™ users observe is that cows reduce their use of the unnatural supplemental systems like lick tanks and protein tubs, preferring to eat BalePlus™ treated forage, saving significant costs.
Q: Can you treat and Feed Immediately or do we have to wait?
A: You may treat and feed immediately. It takes about an hour for the ProteinPlus™ formula to permeate the bale the expected 60-70%. Cows may begin eating at the core where they smell the “good stuff.”
Q: Can you treat and feed later?
A: Yes. We guarantee the ProteinPlus™ formula in treated bales for 30 days, but many BalePlus users store treated bales for longer periods.
Q: Can we unroll treated bales or chop and mix them?
A: Yes, We have many customers who do.
Q: How much is shipping?
A: Provide us with which system or re-order you would like and your zip code, and within 60 seconds, we will give you the delivered cost, including shipping.
Q: How long do I have to wait to get my order?
A: Once we receive your payment, your order will be delivered within a week.
Q: What is the difference between BalePlus™ and HayMaster Systems?
A: HayMaster is no longer operating.
