Re: Silage wrap.

To whom it may concern. I have been led to believe; by my Hesston haying equipment dealer, my Vermeer haying equipment dealer, and my Anderson haying equipment dealer that hay wrapping materials or supplies are not yet available for our farming uses in the northern sates.
What do you think we are doing up here? Shoveling snow?
I want to know who in your firm is deciding when, where and how I am to do my haying. I start two weeks before Memorial Day each year. And, I am short on hay silage wrapping materials.
If your firm is unable to supply us the product materials we need in our Spring farming operations, perhaps your firm can suggest comparable or competative materials and where we may purchase them.

I thank you your cooperation in these matters.

You probably can get what you need down here in the south!
We have not shoveled snow in more than 10 years.
We do hay all year long.
Surely the wrapping supplies are here.
Just a suggestion.

I have not seen the kind of wrapping in the deep south Fern is talking about. I have been around hay all my life but I never saw silage wrapped that way. May be a northern solution to keep moisture out.

Check pics in photo gallery.

I saw the pics earlier, never thought about WANTING moisture in the hay. The humidity is so bad here and in southeast Texas that too much moisture is a huge problem. Learn something new everyday.

The co-op here sells a deal they call baleage wrap. I spect it's about the same thing

I thought I'd seen some wrapped in fields here in our area.

yes Mam I know one feller that does about 300 acres a year in them. Never asked him how many bale it is but they are some long long rows of white tubes.
