feed lot
« on: July 07, 2012, 09:08:13 pm »
Hi Friends I am planning on setting up a small feed lot to raise fattening cattle what would be the best type of machine to buy for shredding hay corn stork and sugar cane etc and leaf etc being i am doing all this in jamaica, I would welcome some thing using a small diesel engine as electric is scarce and expensive in my neck of the woods. I have also look at the wood chipper shredder and wonder if this is the best route to go down as i could also do with some mulshing to put on the land for veg farming

have a look at this Martel, and welcome to the site :thumbsup:
these things are not cheap but should do the job for you

What are you paying for a gallon of deisel in Jamaica ?

Can you send us some sunshine ?, our summer has been cancelled through lack of interest this year
