Abstract. The objectives of this research were to collect and parse CAN, topography, timing, and path data for forage operations leading to individual cylindrical round bales with highest possible accuracy for subsequent analysis, to analyze fuel consumption rate and engine load data to ascertain loading differences which could reflect baler consumption rate, and to determine the possible resolution extent of forage yield maps generated without load cells or specific baler instrumentation.
