Choose a wrap with several layers to protect your silage, including UV stabiliser and puncture-resistant inner layers. The film thickness is measured in millimetres, and it should be used within 24 hours of baling to prevent fermentation. The film is not always visible before wrapping, so you need to know the specifications and amount per bale before purchasing it. Here are some tips for choosing the best Net_Wrap silage wrap for your bales.
A quality wrap has a varying amount of tack and tact and should last the entire season. Otherwise, you’ll end up spending more and creating more waste. The film should also adhere well to itself, creating an airtight seal, which prevents oxygen from getting into the bales. Choosing a wrap with the right properties for your needs is important. For example, a good wrap should be UV-resistant and provide an airtight shield.
To select a good wrap for your bales, consider the level of sun protection. Silage with a high percentage of air, for example, will require twice the amount of wrap as a feed with high amounts of moisture. As a rule of thumb, the amount of wrap should be about half the dry matter of the bale, as a higher percentage of water content will cause condensation inside the bale. You should also ensure that the wrap has the same weight as the bale.
To maintain the integrity of the wrapped bale, choose a wrap that can be easily removed and is UV-protected. Silage with a high dry matter content should be pressed or compacted more. For optimal air exclusion, allow two hours between pressing and wrapping. After wrapping, keep the bale on one side to avoid blockages. So, choose your wrap wisely! You can reap many benefits by choosing a wrap made of recycled materials.
Once you’ve purchased your new Net_Wrap silage wrap, it’s time to store it. A good wrap must be stored between 15 and 30 degrees Celsius and protected from UV rays. Store the plastic film in a cool, dry place for long-term use. The film must be kept dry and not too humid or wet. Using the proper silage wrap will prevent blockages and ensure a high-quality product.
Wrapping a bale is essential to ensure a quality product. The film needs to be stored between 15 and 30 degrees. In addition to being UV-protected, the film must be kept out of direct sunlight for the most effective storage. However, the film should be kept dry and away from extreme temperatures, as excessive heat and sunlight can lead to blockages. Incorrect storage can also lead to mould and moisture buildup in the bale.
Silage wrap is important to protect your bales. Regardless of its shape, it’s vital to keep the material free of debris. While silage wrap isn’t as effective as the bale wrap, it can still help you save money and ensure the quality of your bales. You can even use it as a sling to protect the top of a bale. The wrap is extremely durable, and it can also protect your silage from wind and rain.
