In another UW bale wrapping study, it was found that silage bales should be wrapped within 24 hours using mil thick plastic. Bales were wrapped at hour intervals up to 96 hours after baling. Bales left unwrapped or wrapping delayed more than 48 hours exceeded internal temperatures of °F.

      Bale a tight dense bale to reduce air (oxygen) inside the bale. 6. Wrap bales in plastic within two hours to exclude oxygen and reduce heat damage. 7. Wrap bales with at least a 6-mil thickness of plastic (8-mil is better), using 50 percent overlap and 50 to 55 percent stretch. 8.

    How could silage bales cost less than silage stack/pit silage on this scale? To find out how, we caught up with Tim Ridgen, the general manager of Ellesmere Agricultural who is contract feeding for Rakaia Island Dairies, one of the larger privately owned dairy farms in the South Island, owned by the Turner Brothers, and combined with Woodstock Farms they're wintering a total of 10, cows. FACT: Forage is at its highest quality when it’s cut. FACT: Waiting for it to dry will negatively impact forage quality. FACT: The extra cost required to bale high-moisture hay (vs dry hay) could easily be offset by reducing hay losses* during harvesting, storage and feeding. The savings in hay loss during harvest. Baling high-moisture forage allows you to harvest earlier and avoid damaging.
