A New Day

New Holland changes its haytool styling to yellow, to present a unified brand image with blue tractors and yellow harvesting implements globally. The new styling is “Inspired by Nature”.

Yellow is not just a sleek and vivid colour, but it also serves as a beacon highlighting the technological advancements and innovations coming down the pipeline for New Holland hay tools, illuminating a brighter future for customers and operators worldwide.

As New Holland embraces this transformative journey, the yellow transition begins with commercial hay tools for late model year 2024, then unfolds in the model year 2025 to include the Pro-Belt round balers.

“Transitioning our hay tools to vibrant yellow isn’t just about a colour change.

It’s a bold statement on our future. This shift marks our dedication to pushing boundaries and providing farmers with tools to not only stand out in the field but also improve their efficiency and experience.”

states Carlo Lambro, brand president of New Holland.

Making Custom Baling Easier

In a strategic move to modernize custom round baling, New Holland has unveiled its latest innovation, the Bale Manager app. This technology allows operators and customers to simplify and streamline baling data from their smart devices, including:

  • Store data: Baling data can be stored on a mobile device or tablet.
  • Monitor baling activity: Capture bale count, size and moisture in real time.
  • Simplify accounts receivable: Capture the job and invoice customers from the tractor cab. Professional invoices are created and can be sent by text, email, WhatsApp or directly to a wireless printer.
  • Export data: Invoice data can be exported as a .pdf, .qif (Quicken Interchange Format) or, coming soon, .csv for spreadsheets.
  • Search through completed jobs: In the app, data can be filtered by bale count, date, crop type, field name, customer name or invoice status to locate data from prior work.

The app is compatible with Roll-Bell Series round balers equipped with the Bale Command II PLUS electronics system. It captures bale data via Bluetooth and streamlines customer service and invoicing for custom baling operators.

“With the Bale Manager app, we’re not just counting bales. We’re elevating the way custom operators manage their business.

Streamlining custom baling processes, eliminating hassles and ensuring prompt invoicing, this app brings efficiency, convenience and peace of mind to every bale. It’s a digital leap forward from the traditional notebook and pen to a user-friendly app that better connects operators with their customers’ data.”

explains Brad Littlefield, precision marketing manager, dairy and livestock segment for New Holland.

Rolling Through Time: 50 Years of New Holland Round Balers

New Holland is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its round balers. Round baler owners can submit their story and a photo of their baler online or at a New Holland dealership for a chance to win a commemorative prize pack.

“From the hitch to the bale ramp, two full years or up to 15,000 bales of factory coverage are standard, plus an additional third year or 22,500-bale pickup coverage.

As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of New Holland round balers, we reflect on a legacy defined by a continuous pursuit of innovation and reliability in agriculture. Each dense square-shouldered bale symbolizes a golden testament, marking five decades of steadfast commitment to baling excellence.”
