Twist & turn bale probeYou'll like this simple new hay probe that has no moving parts and pulls out an actual sample from any depth in square or round bales.
The probe consists of a metal rod with a handle at one end and a hay-gathering notch at the other. "You simply insert the probe into the bale to the desired depth, give it a ? turn and retract. It'll come out with a small sample that you can touch and smell unlike other probes that just give you a readout," says inventor Vince Koebensky, Buffalo, Minn.
The probe comes in a 12-in. long size for standard square bales, a 24-in. size for square and round bales up to 4 ft. in dia., and a 36-in. long size for round bales up to 6 ft. in dia. They sell for $10, $11 and $12 respectively, postpaid.
