Declan Goldrick and his nephew Jason run a goat farm in Kilnaleck, Co. Cavan. They use all straw bedding for
their goats. Before they bought a McHale C460 they were doing all the bedding by hand. The goats are housed
in a shed which is 160ft long and has double bays either side each measuring 21 foot wide. As they use straw
for bedding all year round he told us that "This year we will save over 9000 in straw costs by using our C460
instead of manual bedding."
Jason, Declan's nephew, looks after the majority of the bedding and said "The C460 was very easy to get
used to."Jason continued "The control box is simple and all the main machine functions can be controlled
from this. The joystick controls the chute and is very responsive. The C460 is a strong robust machine
which is a lot less likely to block than other models as the blowers can be at full rpm before you start to
feed the straw. Once the floor speed is adjusted right you will get a good even flow."
"This year we will save over 9000 in straw costs
