In order to achieve the best silage quality, the dry matter content should be 30 - 50%. The bales should be previously pressed and wrapped in a polyethylene net or tied with a polypropylene string. The bales should be wrapped with foil, preferably within 2 hours of pressing. The bales should not be wrapped with foil during rain, as the foil loses its stickiness.
Before wrapping bales, adjust the wrapper and clean the rollers from glue. The stretch of the film measured on the bale should be 60 - 80%. To ensure proper adhesion of the layers, the roll should be positioned so that the foil touches the bales with the adhesive side. It is recommended to wrap the bale 5 times with foil with 50% overlap in order to optimally protect the silage. remember to iron hard so that the bales are well compacted and obtain a cylindrical shape.
Storage of bales with silage:
Transport of silage bales should be kept to a minimum. The ground for storing bales should be previously cleaned of any objects that could damage the foil. Additionally, the area for bales should be flat and dry, away from hedges and trees. Store the bales at a minimum distance of 10 meters from water reservoirs. Bales with a high dry matter content can be arranged in layers of 2-3 layers in a pyramidal shape. Protect the bales against livestock, rodents and birds.
