Fabrice Parsonneau, who has been based in Saint-Aubin-le-Cloud since 1996, is very familiar with turbine bale unrollers, and even more so with the UBI Flow, as it is his second machine.
"My other Ubi Flow was 6 years old and starting to get tired. But the main reason I wanted to change my bale unroller was to switch to a rear turbine. For me, the disadvantage of the front-mounted turbine is the lack of visibility when it comes to unrolling the bale", explains this son of farmers who took over the family business.
While his parents produced goat's milk, Fabrice opted to breed Parthenaises. Heading up a farm of 70 animals, he straws every morning with cubic and round bales.
His bale unroller straw blower enables him to throw the straw 14 metres into the bottom of his barn without any difficulty.
"This machine straws very well. In cubic bales, the shredder does a really good job. It's indispensable", says the 53-year-old farmer. Added to this is the possibility of adjusting the opening speed of the chute, another advantage in his view.
